By Peter Bandettini & the OHBM Neurosalience production team
In this conversation, Peter Bandettini meets members of the BrainArt SIG to discuss its history from the NeuroBureau to its current formal SIG status. They discuss what brain art (or more generally science art) is, consider what the best features of brain art are, and how, essentially, any scientist trying to convey the essence of their findings can be considered an artist. You’ll discover the planned competitions and directions of the BrainArt SIG. The discussion also considers why diversity in this SIG, the field of Brain Mapping, and science in general is so important.
In the episode you’ll hear about the ‘Dream Catchers’ exhibit from OHBM2017 in Vancouver, and how those with dementia can discover new artistic creativity. You can also see some highlights from the OHBM 2020 exhibits below:
Aman Badhwar, Valentina Borghesani, Peter Kochunov, Ting Ku, Zoltan Nagy and Sridar Narayanan are leaders of the BrainArt Special Interest Group.
The Neurosalience production team consists of Anastasia Brovkin, Katie Moran, Nils Muhlert, Kevin Sitek, and Rachael Stickland.
