The eyes are the window for the brain. Yet there are many mysteries about how our brains makes sense of what we see and, more specifically, how we perceive art. Join David Wilson, director of the Casey Eye Institute at OHSU, as he presents on art, perception and the brain as part of panel discussion with leaders in the field of neuroscience from OHSU and the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle.
The lecture and discussion will investigate the brain science behind visual perception, looking at art, and even the way our brains are wired to see and experience the natural world.
