Neuroscience uses many techniques to look inside the brain, including MRI, EEG, PET scans, histology and electrophysiology. This artwork competition asks young people to imagine what we might see if we could look inside their brain. They are welcome to interpret this as scientifically or artistically as they wish.

Entries may be displayed (without contact information visible) at the BHRC 11th annual conference and at the public seminar Neuroscience: A Window to the Brain at 5.30pm on Wednesday 7 June, where the winner of each category will be announced.

Each category winner will receive a BHRC t-shirt and $50 prize money. If the winner is not able to attend the seminar these prizes will be posted to them.
