Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross – The Neuroscience of Art

Join us for a journey through the new science of neuroaesthetics, and discover how your brain transforms when you participate in the arts.

For most of us, the arts are a great source of pleasure. But could making art actually be good for your brain and body?

Susan Magsamen is the founder and director of the International Arts + Mind Lab at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she studies how the brain and biology change when we participate in the arts. She’s the author of Your Brain on Art, a new book making a powerful and persuasive case for the medicinal benefits of art. She wrote the book with Ivy Ross, Vice President of Design for Google’s hardware division, and both authors joined David Malone to tell us more.
