Medicine and Science, that's me! My name is Giusy Davino and I'm just a 22-years-old medical student in University of Salerno (Italy) with internet access!
"Isn't it strange
That princes and kings
And clowns that caper
In sawdust rings
And common people
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?
Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules;
And each must make -
Ere life is flown -
A stumbling block
Or a stepping stone."

 

When Neuroscience becomes art.


Neuroanatomy and neuroscience were never so interesting, especially when you don’t have to “visualize” them on an atlas, but you can admire their beauty and perfect organization in an Asian sumi-e style.

These paintings represent, in order:

  • Synaptogenesis - Formation of synapses between neurons, cells electrically excitable, that allows information’s transmission.
  • Hippocampus - Important part of the limbic system, correlated to the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory. In Alzheimer’s disease, it is the main region of the brain to suffer damage and waste.
  • Retina - A light-sensitive layer of the eye, with neurons interconnected by synapses.
  • Cortex - The outer surface layer of the cerebrum, composed of gray matter. It is so advanced in humans that it is organized in “gyri”, achieving maximum mass with minimum volume. Cortex develops memoryattention, thoughtlanguage and consciousness.
  • Neurons.

Neuroscience art is realized by Greg Dunn.
