Into Whiteness is the story of how your ability to find your way in the environment and to remember your history, arise from activity in neural circuits deep within your brain. It is also the story of what happens when these neurons that underpin memory and navigation start dying in Alzheimer’s disease.
The ArtScience lecture Into Whiteness will premiere at Stephen Hawking Medal Ceremony at Starmus IV, 20 June 2017
Into Whiteness is an integrated art/science collaboration, aiming at boosting public understanding of neuroscience research at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in the context of Alzheimer disease.
