Dr Margaret Livingstone's Art & Neuroscience Lecture

Margaret Livingstone's lecture about what art can tell us about the brain is fascinating. It's about 45 minutes and you can't download it to your iPod, but it's well worth eating lunch at your desk and watching it. She explains why certain colour combinations send parts of the brain blind and even explains how the eye's centre surround visual system makes the Mona Lisa smile. You'll never take your eyes for granted again.
