Do You Mind? was an art-science collaboration that paired early career neuroscientists at the University of Auckland Centre for Brain Research with local artists, to develop cross-disciplinary dialogue. When artist Tom Henry visited Renee Gordon in her neurodegeneration research lab she showed him cultured astrocytes using a fluorescent microscope (shown in green, nuclei in blue). Tom commented that her images “evoked everything from star-like galaxies to seaweed forests,” and in response produced prints by pressing paint between surfaces to create semi-symmetric shapes, referencing brain hemispheres and regeneration of cells. See Dowie, et al. (e1001340)], in this issue.
