"The Beautiful Brain" at NYU's Grey Art Gallery features the drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Spain, 1852–1934). Known as the father of modern neuroscience, Cajal is credited with discovering intricate functions of the brain long before the benefits of modern medical imaging. His astonishing and detailed drawings represent the intersection of art and science while portraying the infinite complexity of the human brain. Juxtaposed with colorful contemporary visualizations of the brain, nearly 80 of Cajal's images are on display in this first U.S. museum exhibition featuring his work.
