The brain of the artist is one of the most exciting workplaces, and now an art historian at the University of East Anglia has joined forces with a leading neuroscientist to unravel its complexities.
Creating a brand new academic discipline – neuroarthistory – Prof John Onians uses the results from new scanning techniques to answer questions such as:What happens in the brain of the modern artist as he or she works? What happened in the brain of an artistic genius like Leonardo Da Vinci? How do the brains of amateur and professional artists differ? Why do artists in certain times or places have certain visual tastes?
