Brain Art and Imaging
January 30 - September 28, 2016
New technologies enable scientists to visualize brain tissue and illuminate the pattern and symmetry of functional structures. These images not only contain important biological information, but they are striking in their beauty. This exhibition includes color mircroscopic photographs by members of the Alex Straiker Laboratory, Indiana University Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, and members of the Justin Kumar Laboratory, Indiana University Department of Biology. In addition, the Video Kiosk in the second floor gallery shows 3D scans of an entire brain made with MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) technology.
