NEW in science?
Pixilation!
Right appliance
penetration!

ROW of sulcus
row of gyrus
furrow bulbous
crevice sirus*.

PICKS and probes and
silicon wires…
grooves and lobes and
special pliers.

EEL and mice brains
— might be subjects —
but on the aim
for humans next?


NOTE: My son-in-law is featured in this article on GeekWire regarding the development and use of the neuropixel: www.geekwire.com/2019/allen-institute-kicks-brain-wave-recording-overdrive-neuropixels-probe/

*Sirus, noun. Large spreading Old World tree having large leaves and globose clusters of greenish-yellow flowers and long seed pods that clatter in the wind. (www. http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/plant-directory/albizia-lebbeck/)
