Science Friday: Etched From The Mind

Original article link: https://www.sciencefriday.com/videos/etched-from-the-mind/ by Luke Groskin, Johanna Mayer, on April 15, 2019 For Greg Dunn, an artist and neuroscientist, “the brain is a sacred object and I think deserves to be treated as so. It’s responsible for our entire existence.” Often with his colleague Brian Edwards, Dunn makes “microetchings” which depict the brain and its neural processes. He begins by making a traditional ink drawing, which he then scans into…
