Brain art

In the Spring of 2023, IALH’s Brain Health Research Cluster hosted a Brain Art competition that was open to faculty, post-doctoral fellows, undergraduate and graduate students, research assistants, and staff from all departments at UVic. The goals of the event were to bridge science and art and to encourage creative approaches to visualizing what brain health means.

Submissions needed to be: a) focused on the brain; b) inspired by research; and c) original. However, they could focus on the whole brain, a favourite brain structure, brain cells, mental health, brain changes over the lifespan, or the aging brain.
