In honor of this year’s Brain Awareness Week 2021, Mount Sinai’s Friedman Brain Institute joins the Dana Foundation in its global efforts to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.

The Art of the Brain is an exhibition of photographs, paintings and illustrations that celebrate the beauty of the brain as seen through the eyes of some of the world’s leading researchers.

With the aid of the latest technological advances, as symbolized by these images, scientists are better able to understand how the brain works and to accelerate the development of new treatments for many brain disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, drug addiction, schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease, among many others.

With Support from Neuriva.

Diversity in Neuroscience (#DiverseBrains)

Diversity issues is a leading topic of concern within and among scientific institutions. During the last two decades, women and minority groups have made gains in their representation among medical and graduate students, postdocs, and assistant professors. Despite these gains, however, we still have a small number of senior women faculty and far fewer faculty from under-represented minority groups at Mount Sinai and nationwide. Recent studies continue to document implicit biases in the scientific workplace, and concerns remain around quality-of-life issues and obstacles to faculty retention and promotion. This affects everyone.

While we can’t solve societal issues, perhaps we can serve as a smaller focus group and demonstrate the kinds of tangible actions that lead to real improvements. In order to accomplish this, the Friedman Brain Institute has initiated a discussion to formulate positive steps by which we can make progress in these areas.

In support of this effort, all of the images, unless otherwise noted, are available for purchase. The proceeds from the sale serve as a donation to the Friedman Brain Institute and will be used to further the “Diversity in Neuroscience” initiative. All images are photo inkjet prints.

Minimum donation of $150.00 per image (unframed).
Canvas artwork is a minimum donation of $300.00.
