Brain, Art, Experience

fMRI technology measures brain activity.

What happens in the brain when we view art?  Is it different from other visual stimuli?

What makes us like art?

Is making art a uniquely human experience?

When did humans begin making art?

How cute is this bear, drawn on a cave wall in France about 30,000 years ago?

Is this helping me write my paper?  Probably not a lot…  But it’s a nice bridge between working with art and working with the mind…
