The Department of Psychology in conjunction with the Distinguished Visitors Program presents a talk by Edward A. Vessel, Research Scientist, New York University Center for Brain Imaging and Co-Director of the NYU ArtLab.
Art reaches us deep within. This talk will focus on interactions between our unique aesthetic experiences and the default mode network in the brain.
Dr. Edward Vessel is a cognitive neuroscientist who received his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California and is currently a Research Scientist at the New York University Center for Brain Imaging. His lab conducts research on the neural basis of aesthetic experience and visual preferences using behavioral, psychophysiological, and imaging techniques for measuring preferences, aesthetic responses and information seeking.
