This morning I spent some time looking through the winners of the first annual Brain-Art Competition, a competition designed to “recognize the beauty and creativity of artistic renderings emerging from the neuroimaging community”. This competition aims to recognize the artistic creativity of our community that often goes unappreciated in the publication process.

There are some incredibly visually striking images and you can view an online gallery of these here.
