Seeing Ourselves is a unique exhibit in which world class art will be combined with cutting edge science to leave viewers inspired by the beauty and capabilities of the human brain. While many scientific advances have inspired artists over the years, art and medicine have a special area of overlap in the desire to represent the human mind and body. As demonstrated in two groundbreaking articles in the March, 2010 issue of Radiology, new MRI technology allows us to see details in the living brain that were previously seen only through the lens of a low-powered microscope. This important step has excited the scientific world, but has not yet been shared with the art world or with the general public. High-resolution MRIs will be displayed side-by-side with the artwork they have inspired, allowing viewers to marvel at both the structural beauty of the brain and the creative potential housed inside of it.
The concept of the neuroplastic brain opens new horizons of hope for healing brain injuries through physiological and biochemical changes, and to become more aware human beings by discovering new ways of experiencing and interacting with the world...
