A link follows to Noggin Bloggin, a new favorite blog on "building networks in the community through neuroscience education and art".   Their most recent blog post,  "Why Art? Noggins Go To Washington", contains photos of many beautiful pieces of art on display during the recent Society for Neuroscience Conference held in D.C.  Of course the elegant drawings of neurons and synapses by neuroscientist and pathologist, Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852 - 1934), were included in the exhibit.  The Noggins team also visited Sidwell Friends School in D.C. and Turner Elementary in Anacostia, where lucky students had the opportunity to make art, inspired by the inner workings of the brain.
