Cortical Circuitboard Dunn's newer work involves using a technique called microetching. He creates these etchings in collaboration with his colleague Brian Edwards.  First, Dunn paints all the neurons by hand. Next he scans them into a computer and assembles them into an image using photo-editing software. Then, Dunn and Edwards create a high-resolution image out of hatched lines; the angles of these lines determine how light will reflect off the image. (Credit: Greg Dunn and Brian Edwards)
