Event Details

Have you ever wondered how your brain reacts when you look at an artwork? Join us for a brainy night with NW Noggin—the Pacific Northwest neuroscience education partnership—and discover the brain science underlying our perceptions of beauty. In a special “brain makerspace,” participants can hold and examine real human brains from the American Brain Coalition, try out brain challenges in Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks, play with a new brain app that allows you to interact with a brain superimposed on their own heads, and sample Pacific Northwest beer and wine from Fort George Brewery and Burnt Bridge Cellars. Let off some “STEAM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) by creating your own neural-network art piece. Explore artwork by Kindra Crick, granddaughter of Nobel Prize winning scientist Francis Crick and artist Odile Crick, which demonstrates how neural connections are essential for perceiving artistic landscapes.
