Neuroscience and Art Blog

After this weeks lecture neuroscience and art in my opinion may have one of the closes relationships of all the topics we have covered so far in the class.The field of neuroscience is a mixture of many different disciplines (i.e. psychology, art, anatomy, philosophy and physiology.) in the articleAccording to Smir Zeki, a neuroscience at University College of London, “Art is governed by the law of the brain and it is brains that see art and it is brains that make art”. Specifically with the example of the relationship between the brain and how we perceive visual language and translate it linguistically and the connection between the two. Where the art factor comes in, it dependent upon the artists mental presence with this connection. Once I finished this weeks lecture and thought about this connection, I came up with my opinion of why I think the mind and art (Neuroscience and Art) very extremely similar/connected. 

“Neuroculture”, the authors Giovanni Frazzetto and Suzanne Anker’s mentions that the neuroscience field is expressed through our culture, actions, movements, and thoughts, as opposed to being specifically studied in a lab. Giving them the ability to do their research and studies on it with many different creative and unique methods as opposed to specific lab experiments and methods.

Professor Vesna this week talked about the research and lack of knowledge despite vast research that goes into the humans dreams. So little is known about them, and professor Vesna uses examples from researches of the hierarchical architecture of human consciousness. The study of hierachical architecture has had a huge impact on the field of neuroscience and art. Artist Matt Mullican uses and works with the idea of hypnosis (What I consider more of an Art/Show), and its influence on the unconsciousness of the mind. This relationship of the mind and action of the person whose hypnotised shows a unique and interesting connection to Neuroscience and Art. Under this trance the mind is not aware of this process/art, yet still connects to the body to perform certain actions.
