Antonio Damasio: Art and the Conscious Brain
President?s Forum
ANTONIO DAMASIO: ART AND THE CONSCIOUS BRAIN
Introduced by CalArts President Steven D. Lavine
?Astonishing... a passionately erudite, penetrating tour
through the human mind.?
San Francisco Chronicle, on Damasio's Descartes? Error


For millennia, the relationship between reason and emotion and
the nature of creativity has remained a mystery.
Internationally renowned neuroscientist Antonio Damasio visits
REDCAT to speak about what we now know about the emotions and
the conscious mind, particularly as both relate to creativity
and the arts. As founding director of USC?s Brain and
Creativity Institute, Damasio has been employing state-of-the-
art brain imaging techniques as well as developing new research
methods in collaboration with artists and social scientists to
elucidate the neural basis of the emotions and the central role
of emotions in social cognition and decision-making. Damasio is
author of the widely acclaimed book Descartes? Error: Emotion,
Reason, and the Human Brain, among other titles.
