Hidden Truths, the Mind Unraveled 2016

 REGISTRATION FOR THE EVENT CAN BE FOUND HERE

Hidden Truths, the Mind Unraveled art exhibition, now in its 5th year, is composed of original works of art by an international group of artists linked by the common bond of epilepsy.  Despite the many advances in the field of epilepsy in developing as well as developed nations, this hidden disability is often wrought with misconceptions leading to stigmatization against those living with this condition.  Art is a universal language which can unite people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, political, and religious beliefs to create understanding surrounding the mysteries of epilepsy.  The art juried for the upcoming show is as eclectic as the nations represented including Jamaica, the Philippines, Malaysia, the U.K., Canada, India, Mexico, and the U.S.

Although the event has drawn from a large international audience, this year it will highlight the needs of our local community in Southern California.  The 2016 honoree is Dr. David Millett M.D., Ph.D, Program Director at the Hoag Epilepsy Center in Newport Beach, California. David is currently involved in numerous epilepsy-related research studies and educational projects including the use of brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies to analyze epileptogenic circuits in the human hippocampus and the cortical control movement. Dr. Millett is also completing a book on the role of electroencephalography in the historical development of neuroscience, and is developing a Web-based Atlas of EEG for training and education.

Hidden Truths, the Mind Unraveled 2016 will be held at The Gray Matter Museum of Art in Costa Mesa, California on October 8.  The beneficiary of The Mind Unraveled is the Epilepsy Foundation in support of translational research in epilepsy.  For more information contact Dr. Julie Thompson-Dobkin.
