The 22nd annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (CNS) in San Francisco is only 2 weeks away! It will feature the latest research on neuroprosthetics, aging, memory, language and learning -- in 50+ talks and 1,000+ posters. You can download the full program or view the schedule online.
Don't miss the keynote talk, free and open to the public, March 28, 2-3:30pm:
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.
