About the exhibition

Neurons and Other Memories gathers together the work of artists and scientists whose investigations offer a bridge between and among the fine arts and neuroscience or neuropsychology. These investigations may occur in the studio, laboratory or somewhere in between. Many of these works share the exploration of common territories of anatomy, memory and perception, but with varied sets of tools and perspectives. These investigators ask questions, search, wonder, invent, reflect and offer us a diversity of expressions to enrich our own perceptions of our brain and its mysteries.

This exhibition also offers homage to Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1954), gifted artist and “father of modern neuroscience” whose intricate drawings of individual neurons (or as he called them, his ‘butterflies of the soul’) revealed the exquisite architecture of the brain.

Neurons and Other Memories was created in collaboration with the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC), specifically Dr. Marlene Behrmann, Co-Director, CNBC and Dr. Michael Tarr, Head, Department of Psychology, Carnegie Mellon. This exhibition coincides with the CNBC’s 20th Anniversary Celebration.
