Neuroscience Through the Ages Makes Neurohistory Fun for Everyone

By June 13, 2018No Comments

A group of neuroscience graduate students at the University of British Columbia have found a novel way to detail the history of brain research. By merging art and science in comic form, they’re making complicated ideas in neuroscience accessible to everyone; by making it fun, they’re hoping to entice a younger generation into the sciences.

“A lot of art and science collaboration tends to look at an older demographic,” explains Samantha Baglot, one of the organizers of the project and recent graduate of the neuroscience master’s program. “We wanted to reach a younger audience, but we also wanted to challenge ourselves to communicate about research in a different, non-academic way.”
