Dazzling Images of the Brain Created by Neuroscientist-Artist

Greg Dunn earned a PhD in neuroscience before deciding to become a professional artist. “I had been a scientist in my previous life,” Dunn said.The patterns of branching neurons he saw through the microscope reminded him of the aesthetic principles in Asian art, which he had always admired. Dunn realized that neurons could be painted in the sumi-e (ink wash painting) style, which involves making as few brush strokes as possible to capture the soul of the subject.
