Happy Friday: Neuroscience art

A friend of mine recently got a gift for her supervisor that was a beautiful painting of a hippocampus. So I was thinking how much other beautiful neuroscience-themed art there might be out there. Unfortunately there isn’t much that I can find, but I did come across the following artist, Greg Dunn Design, who does a number of stunning pieces that are brain-themed. Check out some of his best below (and if you like one, buy it from him! They are surprisingly affordable):

If anyone knows of other amazing neuroscience-themed art out there, please post links in the comments.
