The Eye’s Mind: Visual Imagination, Neuroscience and the Humanities

May 21, 2016 - May 22, 2016

The visual imagination is one of the most powerful human capacities. It plays a vital role in art and literature, religion and science, and has been studied and celebrated by artists, writers, philosophers, psychologists, and, now, neuroscientists. The event, which is the culmination of the AHRC-funded research project, ‘The Eye’s Mind’, will bring together leaders in all these fields to shape a new and more integrated understanding of this mysterious mental resource.

Keynote speakers include:
Paul Broks (psychology), John Onians (art history),
Joel Pearson (neuroscience), Michael Tye (philosophy)
and Adam Zeman (neurology)
