CUriosity3: The Brain in Art and Science
Thursday, March 13, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
CUriosity3 is a public seminar program addressing the intersection between Arts and Science with a view to start interesting discussions and debate around the common ground of creative practice and scientific discovery.
"Understanding how we perceive the world around us and process the raft of conscious and unconscious stimuli that bombard our senses is a source of constant inspiration and intrigue for artists and scientists alike. Join us for short talks and audience led panel discussion, where we will discuss our current understanding of the brain in relation to neuroscience phenomena such as “inattention blindness” and the “power of the mutual gaze”."
For this session on "The Brain" we are thrilled to have Noah Hutton in the chair, of The Beautiful Brain http://thebeautifulbrain.com/. With a passion for all things Neuroscience, Noah will lend his own insights into the discussion and field questions from the audience to the panelists.
The discussion part of the evening is open to all, with a chance to ask questions of our speakers about the goals of their research and practice, and how their approaches influence society at large.
