Issue 177: The size of a cell’s local interaction neighborhood leads to emergent patterns via contact inhibition. Based on our recent preprint, this cover artwork plays out two cell types. Two types of gray cells can either divide up/down or left/right (interaction neighborhood of size 2). In contrast, red cells can divide up/down/left/right/diagonal (neighborhood size of 8). Red cells change from red to blue over time.
