The Art and Neuroscience Project started in 2013. It is run by Professor Chrystalina Antoniades, who won an Early Career Researcher Award at the 2016 Vice Chancellor's Public Engagement with Research Awards for her work in this area. She says: 'Taking part in these activities has given me a different perspective on my research.' 


Chrystalina Antoniades and Jacqueline Pumphrey ran this project, funded by two successful applications to the University's Public Engagement with Research Seed Fund 

The project bridges the gap between objective research into Parkinson’s disease and subjective patient experience of the condition, through the medium of art.

The last few years have seen a wide range of events at the Ashmolean Museum showcasing the work of this project. There have been activities for families, workshops for schools, as well as talks and debates on art and neuroscience. The videos below give a flavour of these activities.
