Imagery from the world of Research & Creativity That is Florida State University

Nerves in 3-D: Scientist and computer specialists at FSU recently collaborated to produce this remarkable, three-dimensional reconstruction of branches of a living nerve cell (neuron) in the brain of a mouse. Neurobiologist Charles Ouimet of the College of Medicine and his graduate student Karen Dietz study how neurons grow and connect to form the intricate neural patterns that characterize normal brain function. The image was generated by Dietz, Wilfredo Blanco and Kevin Beason within the Visualization Laboratory of the School of Computational Science and Information (CSIT), a unit directed by Gordon Erlebacher and David Banks.
