Please Explain: Neuroaesthetics

Friday, May 31, 2013

Neuroaesthetics is an emerging field of studying art through neuroscience to find out what it is about certain works of art that moves us. David Freedberg, the Pierre Matisse Professor of the history of art at Columbia University, and Neuroscientist Ed Vessel, research scientist at the NYU Center for Brain Imaging, explain what happens in our brains when we see artwork that we find beautiful and what the neuroaesthetics is revealing  how we look at art and the mind.
