Drawing the Mind at Edinburgh Science Festival

How does your brain work? This question has been puzzling scientists for centuries and will probably continue to do so far into the future. However, there is plenty we do know about the inner workings of the brain. Some of the most ground-breaking discoveries in neuroscience have come from making careful observational drawings from what can be seen in the brain when looking down a microscope. In this workshop you will use these methods of microscopy and art to understand the anatomy of the brain, the cells that it is composed of and how they connect to enable our brains to work.

Holoxica will be exhibiting digital holograms of the brain and a DTI dataset.
