Neuroimaging in art

Every week, Molecular Imaging brings hard-hitting neuroimaging research to light, but today we are highlighting the unorthodox work of one neuroscientist—his paintings, in fact, which depict the microstructure of the brain.

Greg Dunn has a PhD in neuroscience and an eye for the finer details of neurons, cortices, and other elements of brain anatomy, as shown in this stunning pictorial. The artist even goes high-tech using gold and steel photolithography, the same process by which microchips are produced.
