Dominika Grygarová: Peeking inside the brain during art perception: Challanges of the current practice of experimental neuroaesthetics
02. 11. 2018 od 10:15 – Mgr. Dominika Grygarová (NUDZ, Praha) - Peeking inside the brain during art perception: Challanges of the current practice of experimental neuroaesthetics. The main goal of the lecture is to introduce the new field of research dealing with neural and behavioural reactions to artworks, neuroaesthetics, by presenting one of the experimental studies, carried out by our research group in the National Institute of Mental Health. The first part of the talk will open up with a brief presentation of neuroaesthetics and its methodological advances and pitfalls. Secondly, we will turn our attention in detail to our last functional magnetic resonance study, examining the influence of semantic and affective priming on brain activation during perception of art. We compared the brain activity of participants who viewed reproductions of artworks in the scanner without any context, and then after their intensive study of explanatory texts on these paintings, as well as participants’ own reflections about these artworks. The presented results based on neural data will be discussed in the context of the general model of empathy-related response to artworks, and further interpreted in the framework of interoceptive and exteroceptive awareness.
