This illustration was published on the cover of Neuron (Cell Press), Vol110, Issue 7, with the accompanying text:

"The illustration is a dream-like depiction of an alert mouse arising from its own sleeping brain under the shadow of a predator. The awake mouse is surrounded by a neuronal forest, representing the circuitry that allows prompt reaction to a predator threat.

In this issue of Neuron, Tseng et al. (pages 1223–1239) demonstrate a REM sleep-active neuronal pathway mediating defensive responses across REM sleep and wakefulness.
