Re: Neuroaesthetics

Experts like Semir Zeky argue that the field of neuroaesthtics can provide a objective and scientific analysis of why we produce art, why we like art, and why we prefer some art over others, all by carefully studying the effect it has on our nervous system.

Re: How smart would Calvin have been?
