The Neuron Family

Hello! My name is Maria Zamfir, I received my PhD in Neuroscience from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. My PhD project was focused on opioids and pain and I worked at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI). During this time I also started the Neuron Family! Neurons are the cells that make up the brain! My goal is to share neuroscience concepts through cartoon neurons!


The Neuron Family is a growing family of cartoon neurons and glial cells. Check out "Meet the Neuron Family" tab to see all our designs and their descriptions.


Our designs are available for purchase on mugs and more - here are Meditation Neuron and Sleepy Neuron! Check out the "Shop" page for more!
