The London Brain Project is a public engagement group comprised of PhD students from the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Unit at the Institute of Child Health.
Michelle Downes and Louise Croft recently ran their first Art-Neuroscience workshop 'SEIZURE.' During this workshop they brought top neuroscientists, professional artists and people with epilepsy together, to explore 'What does epilepsy mean to you?' through the creation of collaborative pieces of art. This model aimed to share different perspectives on epilepsy. The final artwork aims to express what epilepsy means when viewed from different angles - scientific and phenomenological - to wider public groups. This unique collaborative effort produced some really interesting results. Watch the video here…..
