Can Art Make You Dance? : Art and Your Brain
April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
If music can make us dance can art do the same? There is actually significant evidence that shows how art not only causes our brain to experience a sensory response but a motor response as well. For the final talk of the Artistic Vision Series, Vincent de Luise will dive into the brain science of viewing art.
