Neuroscience Art Show Shows EEG-Driven Robots, Beauty of Brain Scans

Courtesy : Wired Science...

Our New York metro area readers have three days left to catch the Brainwave: Common Senses neuroscience show at the Exit Art gallery, which ends April 19.

In the Scienceline video (sorry, we couldn't embed it) on the topic, we saw beautiful brain scan images by Suzanne Anker, and the robot at the right, which is driven by a computational interpretation of an artist's brainwaves during REM sleep. Its creators, Fernando Orellana and Brendan Burns, hopes the technology will evolve to the point where robots can reenact our dreams.

You're not going to find a ton of science in the video, but we appreciate fresh perspectives on brains from people working with the left right side of theirs.
