Model Cross-Section

Caption: Researchers at The Ohio State University created on Ohio Supercomputer Center systems a 3-D model of an ant to study the biomechanical properties of the neck joint. A cross-section of the neck region shows the esophagus (teal), head exoskeleton (green), neck tissue (purple) and thorax exoskeleton (brown).
