  Neuroesthetics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Neuroesthetics is a rapidly growing subdiscipline of neuroscience seeking to explain and understand the esthetics of domains such as art and music at the neurological level.
Neuroesthetics directs attention to the bodily structure and response of an organism in an encounter with esthetic phenomenon such as art.
A historical example of neuroesthetic interest is the reception of Byzantine portraits in the Babur empire under the rulership of Akbar [1].

Empathy in the Brain and In Art is the theme of the upcoming fourth international conference on neuroesthetics to be held on January 15th, 2005 at UC Berkeley.
While neuroesthetics has focused on the neurobiology of creativity and the role of emotions in artistic expression, it would be valuable to extend the boundaries of research to include artists who exhibit OCD or even techies who have ADD.
While neuroesthetics is still an emerging discipline, it is being accelerated by places like the Neuroscience Institute's research facility that focuses on music and the brain is accelerating our understanding of the neural basis of artistic creativity and achievement.

Neuroesthetics for the performing arts must examine the neuropsychology of symbolic behavior.
The perception of performance behavior is comparable with the laws Zeki has proposed for the visual arts because we "see" performance.
The scientific-artistic process is designed by comparing known brain function with known composition exercises or the artistic creative process of an established work.

Her meetings with Professor Semir Zeki persuaded both of them that Professor Zeki’s research into neuroesthetics and the work of the Gruter Institute in the field of law and emotion explored if not the same then at least very similar processes of the brain.
In art, neuroesthetics is helping to define the building blocks of artistic expression while in law, neuroscience is now being used to understand the processes of moral and ethical decision making.
This was the first time that neuroesthetics was presented to a general public in Germany.

Advances in genetics, new technologies that allow us to peer into the brain even as it performs tasks, and powerful methods of computing and crunching massive amounts of data fuel the latest push to integrate fields.
Along the way, new ones are being generated, such as neuroeconomics, neuropharmaceuticals, and neuroesthetics, which combines brain imaging and genetic analysis to understand artistic creativity and our innate responses to art.
Most important, today's cutting-edge brain research is heading us toward a new generation of medical treatments while taking us closer to unraveling what it is to be human.

 Definition of Neuroesthetics
Tools such as brain imaging and genetic analysis contribute to developing neuroesthetic knowledge.
A historical example of neuroesthetic interest is the reception of Byzantine portraits in the Mughal empire of Akbar [1] (http://www.galbithink.org/sense-s3.htm#recept).
Byzantine portraits differed from Mughal art of that time in a neurologically important way: the Byzantine portraits presented a large central figure making strong eye contact with the viewer.

 BERKELEY / Conference focuses on brain, pleasure / Artists, scientists look at neurology of aesthetics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In theory, while a wine with soul could never be designed with blueprints, knowledge of the brain's pleasure-response map could help guide the winemaker in his intuitive efforts.
At the same time, according to the researchers in neuroesthetics, scientists could learn much from artists about the role of memory, language, culture and emotion in the brain's response to pleasure -- factors traditionally considered rather squishy for laboratory study.
Building on knowledge of brain structures gleaned from imaging technologies such as MRI, neuroesthetics deals with pinpointing how the brain responds to such emotional experiences as taste, empathy and -- the topic of next year's conference -- the many varieties of love.

Here, the impossibility of ever finding, in individual romantic attachments, the ideal romantic conditions constructed by his brain is emphasized by the belief that only in death can this be achieved.
The future field of what I call neuroesthetics will, I hope, study the neural basis of artistic creativity and achievement, starting with the elementary perceptual process.
I therefore hope that neuroesthetics will broaden to tackle other issues, such as the neural basis of religious belief and the relation between morality, jurisprudence, and brain function--questions that are fundamental in man's quest to understand himself.

 Aesthetics
The word aesthetics was first used by German philosopher Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten, who helped to establish the study of aesthetics as a separate philosophical field of study.
The field has now branched into the realm of the scientific, however, with the advent of neuroesthetics, pioneered by Dr. Semir Zeki.
The word aesthetic can be used as a noun meaning "that which appeals to the senses." Someone's aesthetic has a lot to do with their artistic judgement.

In more detail, it was created by a mathematical formula built up from trigonometric and algebraic functions and then some rules of neuroesthetics for example colour contrast and co-ordination and symmetry were applied.

The conference, presented jointly by the Minerva Foundation of Berkeley and the Institute on Neuroesthetics of London, drew a large audience to the Anderson Auditorium at Berkeley.
A group of eight speakers, representing disciplines from molecular biology and mathematics to neurobiology, the english language and linguistics, grappled with the question of how the brain perceives art.
The role of the senses and of a balanced, proportionate judgment in our sense of justice suggest the possibility of fruitful links to the study of neuroesthetics, links which the Gruter Institute looks forward to exploring further.

Are we wired in ways that make every one of us enjoy a smiling bust and shiver at a frowning one?
The Third International Conference on Neuroesthetics, subtitled “Emotions in Art and the Brain,” was held earlier this year at the Berkeley Art Museum and tried to get a start at least on answering such questions.

Macedonia outlined the long history of military simulation and serious games, which dates back to Link Aviation's development of "blue box" flight trainers in 1940, which though not virtual, helped train some 500,000 pilots in World War II, and ranges to SimNet LAN networking in 1986, some of the first online multiplayer environments.
