WHY DO WE NEED TO SLEEP? There are many good answers to this question, but one of them is – we need brain wash! This is taken care of by the GLYMPHATIC system, an amazing system that – during sleep (especially deep sleep) – helps the brain to get rid of cellular waste, that could […]
I have made a short, animated explainer about the Omicron variant and how if diverges from the Delta (and other) variants of SARS-CoV-2. Watch it here. The data for the World map is from GISAID (www.gisaid.org), whereas all other information is from the research papers listed at the end as references.
Last year, I made an animation about ground water pollution and its impact on human health – for Torben Sigsgaard at Aarhus University. Read his tweet about it here: pic.twitter.com/csqdxW6fUi — Torben Sigsgaard (@TorbenSigsgaard) January 12, 2022 The animation can also be found here: https://publichealth.uic.edu/news-stories/global-health-research-connects-nitrate-in-drinking-water-with-birth-defects/
This animated data-visualization shows the shift from delta (blue) to omicron (red) variant of concern of coronavirus in the EU / EØS countries of Europe. The incidence in the different countries are shown as height. All data are from European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/news-events/weekly-epidemiological-update-omicron-variant-concern-voc-week-2-data-13-january-2022). https://youtu.be/hr8TZO48GQ0
I have made an animation, that compares the COVID-19 numbers (infected, hospitalized, tested) in Denmark week by week in 2020 and 2021. The image below shows the situation in week 52 in the two years compared. Follow the link to see the full animation in my LinkedIn post: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/ann-louise-bergstr%C3%B6m-4862bb3_covid19-datavisualisation-animation-activity-6884492825996668928-uKrF
It’s the end of 2021 – and the beginning of 2022. I hope for a great year – hopefully without too much COVID-19 and with new and better solutions for great challenges like the climate changes. With this image of a crack in the ice (on the lake close to my Swedish summerhouse) that really […]
This animation / visualization is a simpler and faster version of the longer animation below. Find info about how it is made and sources in the previous post.
I have recently made a second version of an animation film about EEG (electroencephalography) for a research group at Lundbeck. This image below shows a snapshot from it (it shows cortical, pyramidal cells firing with different frequencies behind some other, unspecified neurons). The film was shown as part of a presentation at the international IPEG […]
It’s getting warmer… Since 1880, the average temperature on Earth has increased – how much, depends on how it is calculated. During the same period, the global sea level has increased with a rapid pace. Moving Science has made an animated visualization that shows the annual anomalies (thus, how much the average, annual temperature for […]
In many countries – at least in Europe and North America – a large proportion of the population has been vaccinated against COVID-19. In Denmark, the vaccines that have been used are the ones from BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca (the latter has however been discontinued). The two first ones use mRNA-based technology – the last […]
