Portrait of a Neuroscientist

Back in April this year, I had the honour of photographing Tim Bliss who lives in the same town as myself. Tim is renowned for his work as a neuroscientist whose has done much to provide a neural explanation for learning and memory. Studying the hippocampus, the memory centre of the brain. In 2016, Tim and his colleagues, Graham Collingridge and Richard Morris won a prestigious award nicknamed the Brain Prize, for their seminal work on understanding what happens in the brain when we make, and lose, memories.
