Vision in Neuroscience and Art
Instructors: Professor Pawan Sinha, Sarah Schwettmann, Seth Riskin
9.S52/9.S916 Vision in Neuroscience and Art seeks to introduce and engage students hands-on with core concepts in visual perception through the lenses of art and neuroscience. The material has been selected both to expose students to the study of brain and cognitive sciences and to engage those already within the neuroscience community in the use of art as a medium to explore and visualize core principles of perception. A combination of seminar-style and studio work will create the foundation for fostering valuable interdisciplinary dialogue between art and visual neuroscience, culminating in an exhibition of students’ semester-long projects.
