Decision Trees and Branching Dendrites

In conjunction with the exhibition The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal

Lawrence Weschler, writer; Carl Schoonover, Postdoctoral Fellow, Axel Lab, Columbia University; and Beth Campbell, artist, will ponder the way branching patterns keep appearing at different scales and in different guises, from the dendrites of Cajal’s neurons to the decision trees in Campbell’s work.

Co-sponsored by NYU’s New York Institute for the Humanities and Grey Art Gallery.
