Inspiration for a project comparing the growth of a neuron within the human brain to plant roots. While the cartoon images of the cerebral cortex, first envisioned by Santiago Cajal, may appear similar to that of plant roots, it’s important to remember that they are only drawings. However, I still think there’s something to explore within the comparison.
I think this project will expand to become a general study of growth patterns found in nature related to branching and inter connections.
