The search is on to find the University’s most unusual and striking images of the brain.
Researchers from across the University are being asked to submit their images as part of a new competition to mark this year’s Brain Awareness Week celebrations from March 14 - 20.
Dr David McGonigle, Schools of Psychology and Biosciences and RCUK Fellow in Imaging the Body and Brain, said: "The last 50 years have been witness to an incredible increase in the number of imaging techniques available to neuroscientists.
"From advances in microscopy to new brain imaging methodologies, from single neurons to entire brains, many neuroscientists now regularly produce images that are not only scientifically informative, but aesthetically pleasing as well. "As part of the 2011 Brain Awareness Week celebrations and events, we are looking for researchers to submit images that are particularly visually striking.’
The deadline for submitting images is Wednesday, Feb 16th 2011 with jpegs images preferred. Images should be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pictures will be judged on both aesthetic content and scientific merit by a panel comprised of University researchers and artists from the local community.
The winner will receive a £50 Amazon voucher with the winning and runners up images to be shown on the BBC big screen in the Hayes area of Cardiff during Brain Awareness Week in March.
Further information on the competition is also available by contacting Dr David McGonigle on: mcgonigled@Cardiff.ac.uk
