Advances in Brain Research

More and more people are finding out about the exciting advances being made in brain research. The main reason for this heightened interest is the modern imaging technology that lets us see how the brain actually works. These diverse and colorful depictions of neuronal activities have heightened people’s curiosity and elicited fascination for phenomena that were previously hidden from our view. In May and June, the Ars Electronica Center Linz is hosting a lecture series about the brain by Manuela Macedonia, a neuroscientist on the staff of the Max Planck Institute Leipzig. She also initiated the “Neuroscience for You” project that makes authoritative information about brain research available to laypeople.
