Scientists in the relatively new field of neuroaesthetics are probing what it is about art that moves us, using technologies that allow us to study the brain's response in greater detail than ever before. Their insights are providing us with a new way to look at art and the mind. How does their research line up with the artist's intent? The conversation will be moderated by Jamshed Bharucha, President of The Cooper Union.
This event is a production of the World Science Festival presented in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
