Fig. 13. Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Blue Brain Project, 2008. A computer-generated model produced with IBM’s Blue Gene supercomputer shows the thirty million connections between ten thousand neurons in a single neocortical column—arguably the most complex part of a mammal’s brain. The different colors indicate distinctive levels of electrical activity. Reproduced from Lima’s Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information, p. 227.
