Brainbow: Brain Mapping


If these were for commercial sale, this would be ego art. Researchers have found a way to label each neuron in the brain with a different color and the result is stunning. Some of the images remind me of Gustav Klimt's work. I want to know what my brain looks like when visualized this way. If it were easy to coordinate and possible to do (they have only mapped mice this way), I would love to run an experiment—map 10 people's brains, print the maps very large and hang them in a gallery space—see which ones the 10 people gravitate towards. Would they gravitate to their own vibration? Would they gravitate to their lovers or best friends? People they hate? Maybe there is a fine artist in me afterall.
