Do you know what your brain is made of?
How does memory function? What is a neuron and how does it work? For that matter, what’s a comic? And in the words of Lewis Carroll’s famous caterpillar: “who are you?” Produced in association with the Wellcome Trust, this debut graphic novel by Dr. Hana Roš and Dr. Matteo Farinella is a journey through the human brain: a place of neuron forests, memory caves and castles of deception. Along the way, you’ll encounter Boschean beasts, giant squid, guitar-playing sea slugs and the great pioneers of Neuroscience.
The authors Dr. Hana Roš, a neuroscientist with a Phd from Oxford University and Dr. Matteo Farinella an illustrator specialising in graphic journalism and scientific illustration who received a PhD in Neuroscience from University College London in 2013.
On the night Hana and Matteo will be our guides on this journey. Hana will be giving a talk & Matteo will be making drawings to further explain and help us understand this strange landscape with all it's characters.
Neurocomic is a dynamic book that has a broad appeal and we would like to invite younger folk along too (ages 9+) who we feel could also appreciate and benefit from what the book has to offer.
Free event with refreshments.
