NeuronViewerVR is the first app for viewing neurons in the descriptive .swc file format on demand in mixed reality (MR). It provides an UI for direct access to the Neuromorpho database

providing ~200,000 different neuronal morphologies from numerous different species traced by scientiest of laboratories all over the world.

Cajal’s Dream

Get it on App Lab here

Cajal’s Dream is an Oculus VR experience where you are flying through a forest of 150 synthetically generated Neurons. It was exhibited in various forms as an art piece called Computational Cajal at e.g.:

  • ZKM in Karlsruhe

The neurons shown in Cajal’s Dream were generated using the TREES toolbox in MATLAB. Although they are artificially generated by a computer algorithm, the neurons closely resemble their counterparts in the mammalian cortex. The realistic appearance is a consequence of general principles of neuronal arborization that were implemented in the algorithmic growth process.
