Just a portion of a digital piece that I worked up for the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition 20th Anniversary Celebration, which will be happening in Pittsburgh in this fall. The piece is called “On the Spectrum” and it alludes no only to the spectrum of color saturation visualized in the image, but also the anatomically distinct regions of the corpus callosum that are shown divided into 9 different segments based on axonal topology.

The corpus callosum is the major interhemispheric commissure of the brain. In more plain terminology, it is the largest set of fibers that connect both halves of the brain. Abnormal connectivity in this fiber pathway is often implicated in autism spectrum disorder. Also, in schizophrenia, the integrity of the connections has been observed to be lower in posterior (right side in this image) regions in visual cortex, compared with anterior frontal cortex. I tried to capture this by decreasing the saturation of color along that axis.
