Brain-Art SIG

The scope of the Brain–Art SIG is to promote the exchange between Art & Science by fostering the dialogue between artists and members of the OHBM community. We aim to (1) encourage artistic approaches and perspectives to understanding human brain function, (2) facilitate the development of novel approaches for the visualization of scientific data, and (3) provide a model of interaction between disciplines while enhancing the public outreach of OHBM. We achieve these goals through annual activities such as the Brain–Art Exhibition and the Brain–Art Competition.
