AAAS/NSF Visualization Challenge - 2012 winners

This morning I've been perusing the winners of this year's International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge, run by the National Science Foundation and Science magazine. All the content is free to access - there's some gorgeous pieces as well as podcasts.

My favourites this year come from the Illustration category (the other categories are Video, Games/Apps, Posters/Graphics, and Photography). There's something innately soothing about wisps of colour hinting at complex neural signals. The first place winner (show below) comes from McQuinn et al. at IBM research,  entitled "Connectivity of a cognitive computer based on the Macaque brain"
