In honor of this year’s Brain Awareness Week (March 12-18, 2018), Mount Sinai’s
Friedman Brain Institute joins the Dana Foundation in its global efforts to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.

   The Art of the Brain is an exhibition of photographs, illustrations and sculptures that
celebrate the beauty of the brain as seen through the eyes of some of the world’s leading researchers and medical illustrators.

   With the aid of the latest technological advances, as symbolized by these images, scientists are better able to understand how the brain works and to accelerate the development of new treatments for many brain disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, drug addiction, schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease, among many others.
