Greetings! This website is a showcase of neuroscientific images, from artists across the world and across time. Instead of the brain at large, the artwork you will find here is centred on the microscopic circuitry that makes up the brain.
These images are reproduced here for educational and aesthetic purposes. Most can be easily found on the web using a search engine or via the author's website. Before reproducing any of these images, please check the licence terms of the original author.
If you wish to contribute or share your work, the curator can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and enjoy!

BrainBow is a technique where cells are made to express several fluorescent proteins, in essentially random amounts. The randomness derives from feedback loops in gene expression. Mixing of fluorescence wavelengths yields a remarkable colour contrast on the single-neuron level.
The method was originally developed by Jeff W. Lichtman and Joshua R. Sanes at the Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School.
