The Neuro-Arts Education website is devoted to exploration of the relationship between mind, brain, and the arts. Both neuroscience research and artworks in the area of neuro-arts have grown during the first decade of the 21st century. Now more than any time in the past, knowledge of the brain and the ability to visualize its functions, during art production and comprehension, is yielding new areas for artistic understanding and expression. This neuroscience is rich for art education, art therapy, and studio arts.
We welcome artists and researchers alike to participate in this growing body of images and information. You are invited to submit articles, websites and images relevant to the neuro- arts movement.
Of particular importance, to Neuro-Arts Education is how this information, drawn from neuroscience, can be applied to assist students in educational settings involving visual art, music, drama, and dance. Application of Neuro- Arts Education principles will have significant impact on education in the future, as we gain further understanding of the relationships between brain, art, and learning. The fields of arts education and art therapy, have begun and, will continue to benefit from explorations in neuro- arts by art educators, art therapists, brain researchers, and artists.
