Neuron journal cover


I created the cover image for Neuron, “…one of the most influential and relied upon journals in the field of neuroscience.” Their explanation of the image is: “Traveling waves of neural activity are frequently observed but little is known about their functions. In this issue, Zanos et al. (pages 615–627) demonstrate that traveling waves in the primate extrastriate visual cortical provide a means of integrating sensory and motor signals. These waves are triggered by eye movements. The cover photo emblematizes the notion that eye movements cause cortical waves, the same way an object creates waves when it falls in the water.”
