Anne and Helen are the brains behind Knit a Neuron. We're both scientists by training, science communicators and avid yarners. Anne knits, while Helen prefers the hook.
In an attempt to combine our love of science and yarn we came up with Knit a Neuron project. We hope that by garnering the support of hundreds of knitters and crocheters we can create a beautiful artwork which illustrates what happens to the brain when it is injured by a stroke.
Helen and Anne are both based in Bristol. Anne works for Bristol Neuroscience and the British Neuroscience Association. Helen works for the University of the West of England and At-Bristol.
