Two of this article's authors--an art professor and a biology professor--shared a project for advanced biology, art, nursing, and computer science majors involving scientific research that used digital imaging of the brain of the zebrafish, a newly favored laboratory animal. These contemporary and innovative teaching and learning practices were a success for the participating art and science majors and led to an awardwinning student conference presentation. This article shares the authors' ideas and experiences associated with the project, presenting it as a possible model in modern liberal arts education. This is done in light of renewed recognition that a liberal arts education is a necessity even in preparation for professional studies. (Contains 4 figures and 1 note.)
