Neurocomic and Beyond

Not content only to work in his neuroscience lab or to draw his beloved comics, Matteo Farinella brought his two loves together by illustrating science comics. Written in collaboration with fellow neurscientits Dr. Hana Roš, Neurocomic features a cartoon adventurer exploring the brain and reflecting on developments in cutting edge neuroscience.
