Art + NeuroscienceNeuroscience has come a long way from the first individuals who attempted to understand what the brains functions were for.
Aristotle was one of the first individuals to look at the brain and its functions and he believed that "the seat of human thought and emotion was from the heart. And he believed that the main purpose of the brain was to cool the blood and thereby prevent the heart and lungs from overheating" (Neuroscience Pt.1 Lecture) It is so interesting how hundreds of years have gone by since Aristotle's initial ideas about the brain and we still do not know its full capabilities of functions. We know a lot more than we did before.

The brain is so complex it goes over my head, and is something so hard to grasp. Our brain is such a powerful tool that we often take for granted. The brain and the mind are creative, brilliant, inventive, sincere, and mysterious...What other thing has all these qualities that cannot be fully understood and comprehended?
Neuroscience is at the forefront of science and art because of the multiple personalities and qualities that is has--it is a beautiful mystery everyone is trying to solve.
