Artistic creation and the brain

This year Barcelona is celebrating the ‘Science year’ and plenty of science-related conferences and events are taking place all over the city. Within this framework, a series of talks called “El(s) futur(s) de la ciència” (The future(s) of science) are being organised.

The next one coming is entitled “Artistic creation and brain”. The talk, in English with simultaneous translation to Catalan, will be given by Samir Zeki, from the University College de Londres. He will be presented by Mara Dierssen, a neuroscientist who works at the CRG (and who is very involved with science communication to the public – she recently organised a very successful and fun ‘brain fair’ about the illusions of the brain).

The talk will be next Thursday, November 22, at 7pm at Palau de la Virreina (La Rambla, 99). I’ll do my best to be there, it promises to be interesting!
