In this lecture, Margaret S. Livingstone, Takeda Professor of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, will examine how major works of art provide insight into how we see, how artists have figured out how our brains extract relevant information about faces and objects, and why learning disabilities may be associated with artistic talent.
This event is in conjunction with the exhibition The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal, January 9 – March 31, 2018, at the Grey Art Gallery, NYU.
Free and open to the public, but capacity is limited. Please see Grey Art Gallery website for more details and updates.
