Brain Art

The Museum of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain Art exhibits the world's largest collection of anatomically correct fabric brain art, inspired by research from neuroscience, dissection and neuroeconomics. Their current exhibition features three quilts with functional images from PET and fMRI scanning, a knitted brain, and two fabric pieces interpreting single neuron recording.
"Building a brain with yarn and knitting needles turns out to follow many of the same pathways as actual brain development," says artist Karen Norberg.
