Synaptic Terminal by darulian Synaptic Terminal by darulian
Synaptic Terminal

A collaboration between me and Kim laurila [link] . He created the organic (neuron) looking render and they reminded me immidiatlyto some illustrations in my biology book. The shapes really look like a structure of a vertebrate neuron.
For those who didnt pay attention in biology class here is some information wich should make the concept more clear.

The cell body of an structure of a vertebrate neuron has two types of processes, or extensions: Dendrites generally receive inputs and conduct signals toward the cell body, whereas axons conduct signals away from the cell body. At the end of the axon, terminal branches each have a synaptic terminal that makes connections with other neurons or target cells.

The working of the CNS (central nervous system) always facinated me. So i tried to make in this picture an visual intrepretation
of it. I hope you like it :)

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. feature :winner: ! congrats! :clap:
Today's theme was titled " TextureWhore " a playful tribute to the wonderful textured devs on dA.
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure (and ALSO, to show off people who I think are undeniably talented in their own genre of art, REGARDLESS of their #'s of fav's or pageviews. I like what I like and sometimes artwork isn't featured in the regular DDs because it's popular all on it's own It's a shame, but the admins are only trying to be fair! ). Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! xoxo Sandi oxo :heart:

wow this is really kicks ass. i put it on my desktop maybe 4 months ago and then i reformatted my os hd. i just found it while rummaging thru one of my secondary hard drives. forgot how cool it was. so i tracked you down via google and came here to fav it. great great wallpaper. i love it cuz its visually appealing while not being total random gibberish. it actually represents something real. thats what i really like about it. ive been fastinated by the brain for a long time as well. i hope you do some more like this. gonna go checkout the rest of your gallery. this is truly a work of art. it is seriously print worthy.
