Turn the sound on and fire up your auditory cortex!
In this visualization, we wanted to break the mold of a typical neuron impulse animation. We dropped our camera into a network of pulsing multipolar neurons and fused a gritty edit breakdown with a driving dubstep soundtrack.
Below are some work in progress videos and .gif animations that show some of Newt's production process.
Neurons transmit electrical impulses along their axons and activate nearby cells via their synaptic connections.
As a reference we used video of propagating action potentials and Calcium signals in a living neural network by Steve M Potter (NeuroEngineering Lab at Georgia Tech)
