|Scientific research can be stunning! To showcase the visual artistry of science, the Chicago Arts District is hosting a one-night show titled, "The Art of Science" as part of 2nd Fridays Gallery Night.
"The Art of Science" exhibition is a collaboration between Science in Society at Northwestern University, and the University of Chicago's Graduate Council, and offers a visual representation of scientific discovery, taking you to places the human eye can't naturally travel.
The images that will be highlighted were produced by graduate students and post-doctoral researchers in scientific laboratories at both universities, representing fields ranging from nanotechnology to physics to medicine. The scientists who created these pieces will all be present to tell the stories behind the captivating images and to share their love of nature and science with the community.
One of the featured artists--Adam Brown (a PhD candidate in neuroscience at the University of Chicago)--will be showing an image that won an award at the fourth annual Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology's national BioArt competition. The image below (first picture) depicts a colony of microscopic worms feeding on bacteria. These worms are one of the simplest organisms with a nervous system, making them a valuable model to understand how the brain works. Mr. Brown is studying how serotonin, which is also present in the human brain, affects food-seeking and foraging behaviors and which specific
