At the intersection of neuroscience and art

DiscoveryAt the intersection of neuroscience and artBlending cognition and engineering to reveal the neural basis of creativityNovember 17, 2015 There is a neural orchestra inside your head. The music comes from tiny electrical signals produced by millions of neurons in the brain, always playing and often changing, depending on what the brain is processing. Listen to the orchestra, and you’ll gain insights into fundamental neural activity and how it differs across individuals. Researcher Jose “Pepe” Luis Contreras Vidal, is listening and he’s doing so from outside the confines of his University of Houston lab. With National Science Foundation (NSF) funding, Contreras Vidal collects neural activity data from hundreds of individuals as they peruse art museums, play games, paint, draw and dance. His research, at the intersection of neuroscience and creativity,…
