Photo contest: “Showing neuroscience”

How can we illustrate what neuroscience studies? For example, how can we represent sensory or executive functions, cognition, pathologies or artificial intelligence, without a figure or the standard image of a researcher concentrated on a computer screen?

Bordeaux Neurocampus offers you to show these notions (an more) through photography, through faces, objects, situations… or more abstract visions! Unveil neurons, strike a pose with colleagues or take out the pipettes! Be funny, realistic or serious… All ideas are welcome!

Your images may be used on the communication supports of Bordeaux Neurocampus.
