Project Background

Launched in 2021, by the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI), in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts,  CONNECTIONS is a project showcasing the relationship between art and neuroscience, portraying the many aspects of neuroscience, brain diseases and mental health in a creative and compelling way. Artists, scientists and persons with relevant lived experience were asked to submit artwork that related to this theme.

As a multi-disciplinary research and teaching institute at the University of Alberta, NMHI is home to over 150 scientists and clinicians dedicated to discovering how the nervous system works, what causes neurological and mental health disorders, and to developing new treatments and advancements in clinical care.

From the neuroscientist to the patient, the carer and the clinician, NMHI believes that true and meaningful progress means everyone working together to understand, share, and empathize in order to promote connections, advance science, support each other and improve the life of those with neurological and mental health conditions.

Aside from showcasing the relationship between art and neuroscience, the CONNECTIONS project will help to support research at the NMHI.
