CEREBRART

On July 21, 2012 the Ukrainian scientist and doctor Leo Gerbilsky presented his ideas about art and the brain at the 8th FENS Forum of Neuroscience in Barcelona. His concept, called CEREBRART, integrates the cultures of the arts and sciences and suggests a new way of understanding neuroscience. Professor Gerbilsky has proposed a model of the brain as a chaotically connected dynamic network of seven modules: Integration, Information, Motivation, Intention, Volition, Action, and Reflection. Dr. Gerbilsky has created a blog, also called CEREBRART, where he explains his work and displays work that inspires him, such as this image of Santiago Ramón y Cajal.
