Johns Hopkins Brain Science Institute sponsored this conference on The Science of the Arts October 20-21, 2010. The conference was focusing on how the brain processes, creates and responds to art. The conference was a collaborative effort by scientist and artist together with the goal of understanding better the converging fields of perceptual brain science and aesthetics through new questions and approaches. The collaboration between artists and scientists is beneficial for the greater understanding of neurobiological functions relating art and aesthetics which consequently leads to advancements in education and medicine.
William Stoehr from Boulder, Co participated in this conference and he spoke during the first day. Several of his art pieces were also included in the conference program.
