When science and art collide, the results are awe-inspiring. The video above by Martijn Steenwijk is the Grand Prize Winner in the  Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience’s 2012 Art of Neuroscience competition. These amazing entries merged neuroscience with artistic inflections. Via Discover Magazine:

The video used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to visualize brain function and anatomy. Also keep an ear on the soundtrack, which was composed by assigning each brain activity pattern to an instrument. The instrument’s pitch varies with intensity of brain activity—raw thought translated into music.

“Organized Chaos” by S. Hoyng (left) received Honourable Mention at the awards. This brain slice from a human autopsy has taken on vivid color in the hands of a neuroscientist: green from infection by a lentivirus, red for neurons, blue for the nuclei of brain cells.

We’re always stoked to find other Art+Science initiatives and collaborations, like these science tattoos or the DNA of film.
