Neurology, Illustrated: The Neurology in Art

Event Time: Wednesday April 25, 2018 5:15 pm to 6:15 pm
ELA Type: HeadTalks
Topic(s): General Neurology, Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): David Thaler MD, PhD, FAAN
Description: From its initial conception as a way to brighten a neurology waiting room, Neurology Illustrated, became a journey to describe neurology by examples in art, and to understand art by its neurological influence. It is now an installed art exhibit that spans millennia and is meant to educate and please patients, families, medical students, nurses, doctors, administrators and anyone else who wanders through the Department of Neurology at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. Dr. Thaler will explain the journey using examples from the exhibit that connect an Egyptian stele with FDR, Charcot with melting Antarctic ice, and Wilde’s incision with homophobia.
