Look closely, these remarkable images are synapses in the brain

These incredible psychedelic images are synapse maps of the human brain at work. The Human Connectome Project has been exploring the brain’s conenctions using a high-resolution map since 2010, and the project seeks to examine the brains of 1,200 volunteers to create a database of healthy brain structure. These images show the Human Connectome Project’s progress to date, but there will definitely be many more images to come.
