For years I’ve been working on visualization and sonification as a means to make patterns in complex data conspicuous to eyes and ears.  My target has been that object of maximum complexity, the human brain.  The evolution of this practice has crept along several dimensions:  Ever improving quality, diversity, and availability of brain data (currently datasets run about 5 terabytes);  Improving computational power for analysis and visualization;  slowly improving skills by the author.  I continue to seek that elusive representation through which an audience might draw legitimate scientific conclusions.  Meanwhile, there are videos like this one that at least hint at the complexity of the thinking, experiencing brain.
