Caption: A series of images (start, top left; end, bottom right) showing neuronal activity moving through the brain. Each image shows activity recorded at 64 points (8 x 8 grid) with more red colors indicating higher activity. At the start, a wave of activity sweeps across the recording array in a right to left direction and then dissipates. The wave then emerges again near the bottom center of the array and expands outward as a ring of activity as the plume passes perpendicular to the plane of the array.
