Neurone development, artwork

Ink on paper painting of 3 neurones at different stages of brain development. Axons (branch-like projections) grow out from the cell body (spherical structure) to reach their target. Neurones are cells in the nervous system which carry information in the form of electrical signals and allow us to sense and respond to our environment. Collaboration with brain researchers at the Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, University of Bath.
