AXNS is a curatorial collective of young curators, scientists and art historians with an interest in the intersection between science and art. They curate exhibitions, events and workshops engaging the public with cutting edge research in neuroscience.

The last project, Affecting Perception: Art & Neuroscience took place in Oxford last year, and featured the works of 10 international artists who suffered from different neurological conditions, and had each found their work had been affected. It was an exploration of the neural basis of how we see, paint, and draw and what we can learn when something goes wrong.
