The Arts and the Brain: Oct. 24

Please join us in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, October 24, for a free public event about arts and the brain. Part of the Neuroscience and Society Series co-sponsored by the Dana Foundation and AAAS, speakers “will address the neurobiology of how we respond to music, and how the brain processes form, symmetry, color and stereoscopic depth perception.” During the reception, attendees will also have access to a special art exhibit, “Beauty and the Brain Revealed,” and to a musical performance.

Speakers at the event are: Nina Kraus, Ph.D., Director, Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory, Northwestern University; Christopher Tyler, Ph.D., Smith-Kettlewell Brain Imaging Center, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute; and Gary Vikan, Ph.D., Former Director, Walters Art Museum. Alan Leshner, Ph.D., AAAS CEO and a Dana Alliance member, will make opening remarks.
