The process of creating a fluorescent tissue block from the cortical column model. a The meshes of each neuron in the column are created and loaded according to their position and orientation specified by a given micro-circuit configuration. b The requested mesh block is extracted from the neocortical column model in (a). c The mesh block is converted into a volume with solid voxelization. d The volume block is annotated with the optical properties of the brain and the spectroscopic properties of the dyes specified in the input configuration file. The density of the cells in the illustrated model in A is only 5%
