Bright Color Palette for Data Visualization

This brilliant (and bright) color palette was extracted from an email I received from DZone.  you can see the original image (the ad about DevOps) at the bottom of this post. The color matrix is really fascinating: it is a high density data visualization that can be fruitfully used for many different type of data. Different more …

 

Vectorial Brain Slices

A collection of brain slices made with Graphic. I’ve recently updated my mac to the latest OS and – unfortunately – my favourite illustration software (sketch) seems to be not fully compatible with the new OS (at least the VERY old version I have). While this is indeed a real DISASTER, I have been forced more …

 

New (dark) Color Palette for 2018

New year, new color palette for data visualization! I do not use a lot of dark backgrounds. I definitely prefer using white backgrounds (both for print – of course- and powerpoint slides). Light backgrounds help the Reader/Audience to focus on the data presented. Dark backgrounds require more heavy processing. Nonetheless, a dark background is really more …

 

SfN17 illustrations

I could not attend the Society for Neuroscience 2017 annual meeting … So I just connected to twitter, followed the #sfn17 hashtag and tried to immerse myself in the moment, but rather than tweeting 140 characters, I have tried to diffuse my frustration (for not being there) by tweeting some “fresh” illustrations on the topics more …

 

The Mighty Mini Scope for Behavioral Studies in Microorganisms

I used to spend many hours working on microscopes, but now that the job has changed I am no longer playing around with microscopes. So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to develop a behavioral setup for microorganisms. There’s plenty of interesting and fascinating questions to ask in the microcosmos but more …

 

My top 6 “positions” in bed…

Feeling so sleep-deprived lately… 🙂

 

Object Exploration Patterns

This is how a mouse reacts when you change the spatial arrangement of the objects placed inside the arena. #openfield #objectexploration #memory #spatialchange

 

Taking a Break from Data Compression

I’ve been doing a full immersion in data compression lately (especially focused on video compression). Just to take my mind off entropy encoding, fast python implementations of Run Length Encoding, OpenCV, and Fourier Theory, I have been playing around with some old vectorial drawings… Also, I am trying to drop my obsession with the brain more …
