‘Brain function’ information sheets

This set of four information sheets was produced for Dr Anoushka Leslie of the Maudsley BRC / King’s College London. The sheets were designed to provide members of the public – particularly patients and their families – with information regarding brain function. They cover the topics of Executive Function, White Matter, Brain Ageing and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI). The sheets will be made available for general download in pdf format via a Maudsley BRC website in due course, and a link to that website will be added here.

The project involved designing the layout of the sheets themselves, as well as drawing all of the individual images. Not all of the illustrations shown here are included in the sheets, but all were made available to Dr Leslie for use in other presentations. All of the individual anatomical illustrations are available for use under a Creatives Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International licence, and can be accessed via the ‘brain ageing’ and ‘white matter’ portfolios on the Neuroscience & Graphic Design website.
