What can neuroscience possibly tell us about art? In this talk, Dr. Anjan Chatterjee, Chief of Neurology at Pennsylvania Hospital, will discuss findings that reveal the brain networks engaged when we respond to beauty and art. He'll consider the uneasy relationship between scientific aesthetics and the humanities, dispel critiques, and acknowledge limitations of "neuroaesthetics." Finally, he'll offer a new way to think about why we are now - and perhaps have always been - surrounded by these mysterious objects that we call art.
