Neuroscience study

Scientist suggests that the brain responds to art differently

Science suggests your brain responds to art differently than real life. Their findings, which were published by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology and reprinted in Science Daily, indicated that the brain responds more strongly to images subjects were told were "real" than those designated "art." However, when participants were asked to rate the same images they were shown for likeability and attractiveness, those labeled art scored higher. Leer más
