Neuroscience 101

Dr. Andrea Protzner, Landon Mackenzie

In describing the addition of sound to her paintings, Mackenzie has said, “Hearing a certain sound made all the red things light up, then the yellow – the painting literally started moving.” Mackenzie will discuss this phenomenon and how she has used concepts from neuroscience in several of her artworks. Dr. Andrea Protzner, a neuroscientist at the University of Calgary, will explain how the combination of sound and visual information can change brain activity.
