PET SOUL BUTTERFLIES 2009

IMAGE : With thanks to the Pablo Garcia Lopez website.

This brain filled with fluttering butterflies is my Happy New Year message to you all, wishing you a 2016 filled with beautiful colourful thoughts.

The PET does not stand for a small house trained  animal but for Positron Emission Tomography which is a functional imaging technique used in medicine and research.  

This image was one of the first I ever collected for my talk on The Brain in Art at Oxford University some years ago and is the perfect way to start The Art of Science 2016 collection.

I will be giving a talk about the blog on 1st February at the University  of Leeds, look forward to seeing some of you there.

Happy New Year
