Title: Roll formation in shampoo vibrated on a plate

Description: Shampoo, a shear thinning fluid, is vibrated at several frequencies. Above a critical oscillation amplitude, rolls form. The fluid flow is similar to two adjacent Rayleigh-Bernard convection cells with the left one rotating clockwise and the right one counter-clockwise.
