Researchers at Harvard University have taken an important step to mapping the detailed architecture of the brain by creating a fantastically complex 3D atlas of connections between individual cells in the brains of mice. Using genetic tricks and fluorescent proteins they have individually labeled hundreds of nerve cells with 90 different colour combinations. The end result they call a 'brainbow'. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brainbow
‘Picture of Spatial Growths - Picture with Two Small Dogs’, Kurt Schwitters, 1920–39 | Tate
Artwork page for ‘Picture of Spatial Growths - Picture with Two Small Dogs’, Kurt Schwitters, 1920–39 Schwitters started this assemblage of discarded rubbish and printed ephemera in Germany in 1920. Seventeen years later he brought it with him to Norway, having escaped from Nazi Germany. There he added Norwegian material: theatre tickets, receipts, newspaper cuttings, scraps of lace, and a box with two china dogs. The different layers of collage reflect the artist’s journey into exile.
