New Look for Brain in the News

Brain in the News, the Dana Foundation’s free, monthly print publication, is getting a makeover. The content will not change, but the design of the publication will. Starting with the January issue, BitN will have a new look. The previously green banner will now be blue, consistent with the main color on the Dana website. There will be more font uniformity, and we will no longer exclusively rely on stories stacking on top of one another—Guy McKhann’s column, for example, will appear as, well, a column. There are more subtle changes as well.

While layout and design are a matter of taste and preference, we hope readers will find the new look to be cleaner and more modern than its predecessor. And Brain in the News will still feature accurate, interesting neuroscience articles from a variety of publications.
