Art is an essential part of human life. Since the stone age, caveman transformed the materials around them to shape, for example, female bodies using the fangs of a mammoth and painted the walls of their caves using natural pigments . This process of generating something new, transforming or transcending the existent, is called CREATIVITY. Creativity and art are a fascinating window on the human brain and its enormous diversity, and research in neuroscience supports the role of art in wellbeing and mental health. Art and neuroscience offer complementary perspectives on the human mind. “SINAPSIS: connections between art and your brain” was born at that intersection. Through the free, online broadcasting of six videos about the cognitive neuroscience of art, this project aims to demistify brain science, fuel the scientific curiosity of the general public and promote interdisciplinary exchanges around the brain, creativity and art. Join us in this journey!
