Figure 2

Confocal images of neural cells on flat (a) and corrugated (d) silicon substrates. Positions of cells nuclei were extracted from confocal images and used to construct cell-graphs (b,e). Computer simulations were used to derive the Shannon information entropy transported through the networks (c,f). Results show that information correlates to surface roughness; surface roughness, in turn, boost cell assembly into small world networks (g).
