From: Dense gap-junction connections support dynamic Turing structures in the cortex

Figure 1

Diffusion-induced Turing patterns in a square cortex of side 25 cm. Panel a shows the case of zero diffusion: the cortex organizes into a diffuse, cloud-like pattern, but fails to generate a Turing structure. Panels b-d show increasing inhibitory diffusion. These cases evolve into stable serpentine Turing patterns containing alternating regions of low-(blue) and high-firing (red) cells.
