Let's learn about neuroscience through cartoon neurons!

Hello! My name is Maria Zamfir, I am a PhD student at McGill University, Montreal, Canada. I am a neuroscientist studying opioids and pain at the Montreal Neurological Institute. Neurons are the cells that make up the brain! My goal is to help share neuroscience information through cartoon neurons!

The Neuron Family is a growing family of cartoon neurons, here is the whole family so far! Check out "Meet the Family" tab for descriptions of the designs


Our designs are also available for purchase on mugs and more - here are Meditation Neuron and Sleepy Neuron! Check out the "Shop" page to be linked to our Red Bubble or Threadless site.


Here is an example of the creating process - Avocado Neuron, sketch and watercolour!
