For Massive Science
The human brain is hugely complex. There is still much that scientists don’t understand about this incredible organ — and the things that we do know can often be hard to visualize and communicate. For the last nine years, the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience in Amsterdam has run a competition called the Art of Neuroscience, celebrating artwork that powerfully and beautifully illustrates the intricacies of brain biology. This year’s winners include a striking installation representing the neurological links between depression and loneliness, and veins depicted in ways you’ve never seen them before. Have a look at 2019′s top entries, and be both captivated and educated at the same time.
