Student works at the Carney Institute explore brain science through visual art

Visual art and brain science. While the number of intriguing combinations of study created by students at Brown are countless, few are as illustrative of how the University’s innovative curriculum encourages intellectual risk-taking and the integration of disparate academic fields. And the walls in the Carney Institute for Brain Science’s new state-of-the-art facility in the heart of College Hill are now bringing that to life.
