How to Build a Human (Part 1)

We humans like to think of ourselves as pretty different from other animals. Language, philosophy, art, technology - we do things it seems like no other animal is capable of. But what makes us this way? In part one of our investigation, we focus on two features of the brain that seem to be particular to people. We start with Arnold Kriegstein of the University of California, San Francisco, who studies a type of stem cell that does something special during human brain development. We then turn to Kira Poskanzer and Anna Molofsky, also of UCSF, who believe the secret to human-ness might lie with a totally different, often neglected kind of brain cell.

  1. I made this utilising forty four animations which are 9 frames each. That's 396 sketches whole - mainly probably the most elaborate GIF I've made to this point. I'm a little sad that I wasn't in a position to show measurement appropriately although. For instance, the 24 week fetus is set 40 times heavier than a 12 week fetus (however you can't tell that from this drawing)

  2. Going online to take a driver education course is becoming very popular because it is not only convenient, it saves a lot of time and money. Compared to the boring routine of attending driver education classes, one can now study in the comfort of their home, at their own pace, whenever and wherever they want.http://www.how-todo.xyz/
