Art of Neuroscience 2016

competition is closed

This is an international competition open to scientists and artists worldwide in which we ask for striking visualizations related to the field of Neuroscience in its broadest sense. These can be images or videos representing actual neural data or tissue, but also more abstract illustrations that are in some way related to neuroscience.

A first prize of 1000 euro and four honorable mentions of 250 euro each will be announced at the FENS Forum 2016 in Copenhagen this July.

Venue: Bella Centre, Center Boulevard 5, Copenhagen
