Medical museums that must be seen – part 3

By January 11, 2006No Comments

In our series of posts about medical museums that must be seen (for earlier presentations, see here and here), the turn has now come to the on-line Museum of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain Art which “exhibits the world’s largest collection of anatomically correct fabric art inspired by research from neuroscience and dissection”. This “world’s largest” collection is on a single web page with four pics: three quilts with images from PET and MRI scannings and a knitted brain (which, by the way, reminds me of the human anatomical knittings by Arrmatie, see here).:

The ‘exhibition’ is created by Marjorie Taylor, Professor and Head of the Department of Psychology at the University of Oregon; she is otherwise mainly working on children’s imaginary companions.
