As the body’s most complex and least-understood organ, the brain is as an object of much fascination and mistque, with many of its functions and structures still unknown. Weighing only 1.3kg – roughly 2% of the body’s overall weight – not only does it perform incredibly diffcult and complex tasks, but it gives us our memories, our emotions, and defines who we are.

This year’s neuroart entries from QBI researchers highlight this beauty, intricacy, and complexity through visuals. We share some of them with you here.
