As part of the Beyond Text programme, a neuroscientist and an artist collaborate to create a collection of art pieces which demonstrate some of the principles of neuroscience. Yet the artist needs to create something beautiful and the neuroscientist needs to demonstrate what is happening in the brain as the eyes try to make sense of the image. Prof. Rodrigo Quian Quiroga (neuroscientist at Leicester University) and Mariano Molina (visual artist) tell Nicola Barranger about their unique collaboration to produce a series of canvases which will demonstrate these principles and which are being displayed in an exhibition in Leicester.

Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
