Again this was not the intended representation, we wanted the landscape to be vast, a near everlasting space of brain cells, to convey the magnitude of the brain. Each of the cells in an individual battle ground against Alzheimer’s disease. But they are all interconnected and when one falls it effects the integrity of its neighbours.

This special scrolling technique in web design creates an illusion of depth wherein background images move by the camera slower than foreground images. CodeDay Dallas Is this a "hackathon"?
