at NYU’s College of Arts & Science:
What Art Can Tell Us About the Brain

January 9–March 31, 2018

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.
