Massive congratulations to Richard Roche, Áine Kelly and Svetlana Rudenko on their successful application to FENS and the Dana Foundation for the Neuroscience Ireland Brain Awareness Week event “Painting Music: sound as vision via synaesthesia“. The complete list of successful applications under this scheme can be found here.
In this event, the remarkable nature of how sensory information is processed in the brain will be conveyed through music and art, through live simultaneous performance of a synaesthete musician, Svetlana Rudenko, and a synaesthete artist, Timothy Layden.
Neuroscience Ireland is delighted to welcome and introduce its new Communications Officer Dr Michelle Roche from NUI Galway. Michelle has been a member of Neuroscience Ireland since it was established and joined the Council in 2015. Good luck in your new role Michelle – we’re delighted to have you on board!
