/ Luke Maninov Hammond's Limited Edition Neuroscience Artwork Prints, Raising Money for Schizophrenia Research /

In conjunction with his current exhibition, Beneath the Surface, Luke Maninov Hammond has created a series of limited edition neuroscience prints using state-of-the-art high resolution fluorescence microscopy, created at the University of Queensland's Queensland Brain Institute.

Each is printed on fine art paper using archival inks with 100% of the profits going towards schizophrenia research. It's Luke's way of combining science and art to help the community.

Two of these stunning prints are adorning our front window for the duration of his exhibition, and are viewable 24/7.

"'Within the In-Between' reveals the brain cells and their complex interwoven processes. To create this image, varying colours have been used to reflect the changing depths of the neuronal processes as they extend through the fine cellular architecture of the brain. Shades of orange through to blue reflect the height at which each neuron is sitting within the 3D tissue volume."
"Above and Below" reveals the fine processes of neurons within the brain. This image was captured at high-resolution in 3D using state-of-the-art fluorescence microscopy at the University of Queensland's Queensland Brain Institute. Each of these branching filaments are approximately 100 times finer than a single human hair. To create this image I have used varying colours to reflect the changing depths of the neuronal processes as they extend through the brain.
'Observing Vision' was created with Dr Jeremy Ullmann (Boston Children’s Hospital). 
The image presents the cell bodies of neurons within the brain of three separate zebrafish. Here, the three fish have been merged such that their eyes are merged with one another, viewing within. Each fish is comprised of 5000 separate images, representing approximately 100GB of data. While the imaging only takes a few minutes, recombining and analysing these images is an emerging challenge for neuroscientists. Colour in this image represents the depth of cells within the brain.
