Neurons are the champions cells for connectivity. The human brain contains about 100 billion of them held in millions of functional networks establishing the links who lead us to knowledge.

The expression "Enchanted Loom" refers to an expression use by the neuroscientific Charles S. Sherrington to describe with poetry what happens in the cerebral cortex during arousal from sleep.

 Revisiting the structure of a neuronal network with a contemporary look , this work offers us a free visual interpretation this metaphor.
