Art: The Nervous System as Art Exhibit

Neuroscapes 2006 has put out a call for submissions for what will become an art exhibition. Details are provided at the project's website.

From the website:
"This exhibition will be the first public display of the world best images captured within the brain by neuroscientists using a spectrum of state-of-the-art technologies.

The exhibition is in honor of 100 years since Santiago Ramón y Cajal was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize with Camillo Golgi for their work on revealing the structure of the Brain.

The exhibition is part of the continuing effort by the CosmoCaixa, Barcelona Science Museum of La Caixa Foundation, International Brain Research Organization (IBRO, and Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC, to provide quality artistic and educational resources related to Neurosciences.

The exhibition will contain 50 of the world's most artistic images that capture landmark concepts of how the brain works. In addition, virtual reality, computer presentations and animations are also considered to accompany the exhibition. The exhibition will open at the Barcelona Science Museum in the spring of 2006."
According to the website, the deadline for submissions is 30 November 2005.

There are three topic areas: scientific images of the nervous system, interpreted images of the nervous system (i.e., "images modified ... in order to expound an idea"), and "the cyberbrain" (i.e., virtual reality computer presentations).
