About

NeuroArt celebrates the many different ways people see the beautiful, mysterious brain. Some perspectives are technical: dyes or tracers are used to visualize individual neurons, neuronal circuits, and brain structures in tissue specimens, fMRI machines generate colorful activation maps to analyze brain activity. Other perspectives are more abstract: a splatter painting illustrates neurons and their connections, an illustration depicts a tree trunk, branches, and leaves instead of dendrites and spines.
