Speaker information

Professor Semir Zeki, UCL Division of Cell & Developmental Biology

The experience of beauty, whether derived from perceptual sources, as in visual or musical beauty, or cognitive ones, as in mathematical beauty, correlates with activity in the same part of the brain: field A1 of the medial orbito-frontal cortex. Professor Semir Zeki discusses the questions this raises about the uses of beauty.
