Your Brain and Beauty
July 1, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
We admonish others, “Don’t judge a book by its cover!” We tell young people, “It’s what’s on the inside that matters!” Yet our brains are highly sensitive to human beauty and our beauty-biases are often fast and automatic.
Human beauty shapes our social interactions in countless ways. Instead of dismissing beauty as something superficial or shallow, this talk will consider the science of beauty and take seriously the impact it has on our brains and our everyday lives.
Join the Illinois Science Council as it continues the “Your Brain” series with Dr. Renee Engeln from the Northwestern University Department of Psychology for another fascinating look into our brains.
