Imaging the brain with old technologies

Here's what was left behind after Physarum and I went all over this piece of paper.
It's my own head, traced around and coloured in with Turner Acryl-Gouache paint. Physarum plasmodium was given fluorescent powder with its porridge, and left to forage over the picture, leaving the powder behind in its protoplasmic tubes as it moved on.

Hi Sahra, 

I really like your work here. I have to set up some experiments with my slime mould. To track his movements I would like to make him glow just the way your mould is. Could you describe the way you prepared the "porridge"- fluorescent power mix more exactly? Or can you tell where I can get those papers from Prof. Adamatzky? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Paul
