The ability to produce 3D animations, which are crystal clear for communication purposes as well as stylish in their appearance, enables us to create leading edge digital solutions for your company. Cortical Studios customizes 3D animations to meet your unique requirements. Following are some examples to illustrate the possibilities of our animation studio. We can visualize how your medicine used in the treatment of depression, schizophrenia, insomnia, or anxiety exert their effects on chemical synapses. The animation could elucidate how the patterns of action potentials along the plasma membranes of neurons are restored which results in a normal functioning nervous system. We can animate the implantation of a hip prosthesis which is often carried out when a hip joint is damaged by osteoarthritis, by articular rheumatism or as a consequence of a hip fracture. We can present your innovative therapeutics for the treatment of cancer by animating the molecular and cellular action of the drug at the site of the tumor. The drug could for example attach to a receptor of the tumorcell surface which subsequently leads to the initiation of a cascade that destroys the metastatic cell.

Our professional multi-platform animation studio, equipped with the latest rendering hardware and 2D/3D software, is versatile enough to make the transition to and from all kinds of projects. LightWave 3D, the most complete and flexible software solution for 3D graphics and animation, allows us to realise everything, from simple graphics for web sites to incredibly detailed organic environments for highresolution projections.

The film explains the process of inflammation and what goes wrong in the functioning of the body, when a person suffers from an autoimmune disease.
Erik Scherder ‘Het Brein’

For the three-part television show ‘Het Brein’ by prof. dr. Erik Scherder at DWDD University, together Cortical Studios and Glow Studio developed more than 30 short animations illuminating the complex nature of the human brain. Topics such as facial recognition, communication between brain areas, and the impact of brain disorders are vividly elucidated with great care and respect.

Cortical Studios was selected by Kemin Agrifoods to create a film illustrating the mechanism of action of LYSOFORTE, a unique biosurfactant that changes the environment in the digestive tract to enhance better absorption of nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins.
Gene Therapy
University of Amsterdam

In a joint effort with Cyberfish, Cortical Studios created an animation for the University of Amsterdam demonstrating how with the use of gene therapy, a liver cell can be genetically changed. With the help of a lentivirus, a gene is integrated into the DNA of the liver cell. The animation is part of a new project: a virtual poster for scientists.
From Molecule to Medicine
JnJ / Norvell Jefferson

Cortical Studios was one of the parties responsible for the development of the short film "From Molecule to Medicine", which Johnson & Johnson commissioned from Norvell Jefferson to show how a drug is developed. It won two gold medals at the 2008 International New York Festivals (NYF) in the categories "Health/Medical Issues" and "Healthcare Professional Education". The film also won a Global Award in the category "Consumer: Film/Video" at The Global Awards.
