From Eye to Mind (Panel Discussion)

On April 12 2017 Neuroscientist Kristina Visscher, philosopher Marshall Abrams and artist Jessica Angel, gathered to talk about how our brains process visual and conceptual information from different perspectives.
The conversation focussed on the flexibility of our brains to manage visual and conceptual perception using visual illusions and analogies as examples to show the ambiguous and diverse interpretations we can give to a single stimuli. Visual illusions, associations, and previous experiences were the subjects the panelists discussed to understand what triggers our perception to give us a sense of what we perceive.
