Left: Wisteria Neuron marries the fractal- like forms of neurons and the botanical branching structures of plants. The convergent branching patterns of neurons and plants serve similar functions in interacting with their environments—synaptic neural connections for the neurons, light for the plants. Right: Detail of the cerebellum—the part of the brain that plays a vital role in virtually all physical movement—from Self Reflected under multicolored light. Below: Cortex in Red and Gold features the cortex, which is responsible for a huge variety of brain related functions. “Evolution has adapted the cortex’s unique structure to take on a staggering number of tasks, and there is no part of the human brain which greater differentiates us from other species,” says Dunn.
