  • Torner
  • Indagaci√≥n, by Gustavo Torner.
  • Torner is one of the most important conceptual Spanish artists and he was inspired by a visit to our lab when creating this piece of art. The white dots represent the firing of neurons, as seen in a calcium imaging movie. The triangle symbolizes science and the line is the clean line of human thought. This etching hangs in our lab and now inspires us in our work.
