Art, Emotions and the Brain
From Neurons to the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan

September 16-17, 2014


We are very excited to have neuroscientist Francisco Fernadez de Miguel as our symposium keynote speaker.  Dr. de Miguel, Professor of Neuroscience at the Instituto de Fisiología Celular-Neurociencias of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, UNAM, will discuss his work in uncovering our brain’s response to viewing art.




Keynote Address: Visual perception of art. What do we learn from pre-Columbian paintings?

“Perception of visual art produces a wide variety of emotions ranging from beauty and pleasure to horror or violence. Advances in our knowledge on the physiology of our visual system allows us to explore the neurological basis of these experiences, if they are they culturally-defined or context-dependent.”
