Graham Johnson ( used ePMV within cinema4d in order to produce this cover.

"The illustration portrays the trafficking of cargo vesicles along actin filaments and microtubles, with the intersection symbolizing the transition between cytoskeletal elements. In this issue of Neuron (Volume 70 issue 1), Heisler et al. (pp. 66–81) offer insight into how the switch between these transport systems can occur, demonstrating that muskelin guides GABA receptors across cytoskeletal tracks by connecting to both myosin VI and dynein motor complexes. The image was created with ePMV by Graham Johnson  of The Scripps Research Institute."
