Brain Art Competition 2014 & Congratulations to Dr. Richard Roche

23 Jun

Congratulations to our own Dr. Richard Roche on his winning piece in this year’s Brain Art Competition hosted by the Neuro Bureau.

Dr. Richard Roche’s piece, entitled “The Isle of Cortica” is a Brain Art Map bringing together his strong ongoing interest in combining science and art.


The piece was “strongly influenced by the Nick Cave Riddle Map by GANDesign Art Studio ( and by the maps of JRR Tolkein for the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. It contains 28 references to significant facts, persons or discoveries from the history of neuroscience and neuropsychology. You can view the map and see all 28 references explained here: Sincere thanks to Francesca Farina of NUI Maynooth for useful discussions and suggestions for content.”
