From Zack Lynch at Brain Waves:

“Neuroesthetics uses brain imaging and genetic analysis to understand the neural basis of artistic creativity and achievement … and has broad implications for all parts of society, including: our legal systems, business productivity and entertainment.”

I’ve always loved the hope that our brains are the key to unlocking everything mysterious about life. Deep down I doubt that’s going to happen but I like to cheer on people that think the things described below:

“Art is a human activity and, like all human activities, including morality, law and religion, depends upon, and obeys, the laws of the brain. We are still far from knowing the neural basis of these laws, but spectacular advances in our knowledge of the visual brain allows us to make a beginning in studying the neural basis of visual art.”
