The Wellcome Collection is an art venue which explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future. It is located in London, and has recently been running an exhibition titled – “Brains : the mind as matter”.
Our work on understanding the brain is perhaps one of the deepest and hardest questions we have tried to answer in biology and its history is of deep importance. It also possesses numerous similarity with genetic engineering – standing on interesting ethical ground (being simultaneously very important and potentially dangerous) as well as invoking visceral feelings of unease.
Check our the image galleries on the official website if you can’t make it to the exhibition yourself. Alternatively check out a great article by “The Curious Neuron” about the exhibition. Finally, I’ve embedded the trailer video for the exhibition below.
Sorry about the word veoi!icatirnf! I have trouble with those dumb things too! Thanks for sticking with it :)Emily – The dad of the baby is not the person that gave K HIV … it was someone that hurt her when she was 13 years old. The family of the Dad (his mother) is raising K's little girl now. 🙁 Thankfully the little girl tests negative for HIV.The stigma and ridicule when you look very ill is a true and very hard part of being ill in Haiti.
