Neurocognition of Art OFFERED ONLINE FALL 2018 AT THE CENTER FOR COGNITIVE ARCHAEOLOGY @ UCCS

When, where, and how did modern human aesthetics evolve?

This August, join Professor Manuel Martín-Loeches of the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) for our online course in the Neurocognition of Art. This course explores the biopsychological basis of human artistic behavior by investigating its neurocognitive and biological underpinnings. We expand our understanding of this otherwise bizarre activity in natural terms, thereby contextualizing art within the framework of Natural Selection. This approach provides a suitable foundation for exploring the possible evolutionary origins of art, its development, as well as its major milestones along human evolution. Although the course is mainly focused in visual art, much of its content can be applied to other forms of artistic behavior. For detailed information (including syllabi) on this course and others offered this fall, visit us at https://www.uccs.edu/cca/
