For today's post I decided to go for something more artistic, rather than accurate infographics. I did three different approaches inspired by the neuroscience field.
First, an image of a mouse brain. I used a sagittal mouse brain stained with Nissl staining as a reference but I changed some of the colors to make it more vibrant.
My second piece is a painting of pyramidal neurons. I wanted to do a more artistic representation and play more with digital touches, so I created a GIF of the image. My abstract representation of the neuronal firing and that’s why you see them lighting.
Lastly, for my third painting I decided to go away from accuracy (compared to the first painting shown here) and have a piece of abstract art. This painting is inspired by the visual system of the male blowfly, which has a mushroom/tree shape. The image that you see is actually a color inverse image of the actual painting.
Comment below, what do you think about these different paintings? Which one do you like more, abstract or more realistic?
