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. Farinella’s compelling visual narratives illuminate the kind of imagination that is required to generate new ideas in science and raise important questions about how we should communicate scientific ideas. At Emerge, Farinella will discuss art and neuroscience with visitors and use his observation and quick sketch skills to render cartoons of Emerge’s characters and installations.
