Showing neuronal connectivity through dance
The music inspired me to depict how neurons communicate and allow us to perceive the world around us. I first show a neuron receiving and processing information, sending it down the axon, and transmitting it to an adjacent neuron. Many such neurons work together to create neuronal networks; these networks enable movement, allow us to communicate with one another using speech and hearing, and make us conscious, sentient beings.
