You need to be a member of art and neuroscience to add comments!

Very excited to have joined this network! I earned master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience and doing research on language cognition. Despite being a researcher, I am an artist also; love painting, acting, poetry and music.

 I would love to know about the calligraphy, the different kind of hand and motor movements during writing. Also would like to investigate what is the difference between perception of artists and    non-artists for same picture. Do the artists have a better sense of 3D and space representation along with emotions?

I want to pursue my graduate studies with Neuroscience and Art cognition. So would like to know if anybody has a position in their lab......

Hello All,

So happy to have found this network! I am a double major in Cognitive Neuroscience and Art at Pitzer College. I have just been awarded a Watson Fellowship (my project is towards the bottom) to study art and neuroscience outside of the US for a year. I was hoping I could get suggestions for labs or artists or others that I should meet. I will primarily be in Europe and India. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have attached my proposal in case you want a better idea of my project.

Hi, I'm a neuroscience researcher who likes to make images that somehow help me to think about my work from different perspectives. It's fun to draw stuff.

Yea! I've found my people. Where have you been all my life?

I'm an artist/neuroscience researcher currently investigating an art-based protocol on clincial outcomes in two patient populations (stroke and MS.) I hope to have something interesting to report this fall. Stay tuned.

simple fare, not denied
to self-organization
we call life.

We come alive in narrative.

Structured tales
tether history,
scientific discovery:
We saw, surmised, tested,
told for you to see.
All of artistry suspends in story,

society, politics, religion,
myths of tribes and
nations; war and tribulations,
arguments for peace, for justice,
philosophers' laboratories,
suggestions, syntheses
Grey matter cogitates, spins
memory far beyond
sense perception,
evolving interaction within
an eco-sphere.

A tree may speak of self
within its frame

But feels no need to form
fantasies of ancient trees,
explain the lore of forest

Here is an interesting article on the connections between mathmatics, complexity, art and the human brain.

Hi everyone! I Am Dani. I am a student of exercise science & The Feldenkrais Method. I am also an actor/performing artist, movement instructor and clinical hypnotherapist. I have a keen interest in neuroscience as it is a thread into all of my work and explorations.

I am a visionary poet with a lifelong fascination with brain/mind/body. I have for several years been studying the healing effects of dance.

I deal with the natural biophysical substrate of visual perception and visual imagery.The main goal of my research is to prove that intrinsic pictures can be emerged by redox and biophoton processes in retinotopically organized cytochrome oxidase rich neurons of visual areas during visual imagery, visual hallucination, and REM dream pictures within the brain. You can read some of my papers on this website.
I do not claim to solve the secret of consciousness, but propose that the evolution in the higher levels of complexity made possible the intrinsic picture representation of the external visual world by regulated redox and bioluminescent biophotons in the visual system during visual perception and visual imagery.
