Brain Awareness Week

This week is Brain Awareness Week! (although, I don't feel particularly aware of my brain right now... another coffee needed...). And so to celebrate, I'm going to share with you some more crafty + brain stuff that I've found.

The Brain Hat. I love how it's half way between a brain and Princess Leia. That is cool.



Purkinje Cells, burnt into watercolour paper, by Nuredduna. Purkinje Cells are my most favourite cell in the entire body (massive claim, I know). They are very beautiful.



The tunic and artworks above I have eyed off for some time. They are absolutely amazing. They are by etsy seller, NeuralNetwork. She's a great artist, but also a student of neuroscience. I love it!


And also, while I'm at it, anyone for a brain jelly mould?

Purchase from here!

If you're in Melbourne, you can check out what events are on here. There are still more events on if you're keen to get your neuroscience fix.

Brain awareness week? I think I've donated mine to science already!

I have to say neurons and nerve cells are beautiful and I love their reflection in other forms of nature (e.g. trees).

However, combine all these cells you get the brain to which I find I find rather creepy.

Thank you for another great article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
