Butterfly Wings Inspire Better Sensors

Butterfly Wings Inspire Better Sensors | genetics | Scoop.it

"Imitating nature is not a new idea. When the GE team put Morpho wings under a powerful microscope, they saw a layer of tiny scales just tens of micrometers across. In turn, each of the scales had arrays of ridges a few hundred nanometers wide. This complex structure absorbs and bends light and givesMorfo butterflies their trademark shimmering blue and green coat."

Mapping and manipulating the brain at scale - Jeremy Freeman

The behavior of an animal reflects computations across its entire nervous system, involving the coordinated activity of thousands of neurons within and across multiple brain areas. New technologies for imaging the nervous system allow us to monitor neural function at unprecedented scales. But the data sets are quickly outpacing the capabilities of ordinary analytical approaches. They are large (one terabyte or more per hour), complex, and high-dimensional, and we want to understand their structure as it evolves over both space and time.
