Neurofrog

Artist:
Dr Yu-Shan Hung

The network of descending neurons in the honeybee brain that transmit information from the brain to the motor units.

The colours in the left-hand side is depth-coded, and the right-hand side shows the z-projection of the stained neurons. The legs of the Neurofrog are the ocellar descending neurons that connect to the ocellar retinas, and eyes are the dendrites in the suboesophageal ganglion. The mouth of the frog is the oesophageal foramen.
