Susan Magsamen & Ivy Ross on the science behind art

Season 2, Episode 11,   Mar 24, 2023, 10:29 AM

As we seek purpose at a time of continued global uncertainty, Your Brain on Art authors Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross join Martin Raymond on his Back To The F**kture podcast to discuss the science behind art, and the true power it has to heal and transform. 

Martin has know Ivy Ross for many years in her role as jeweller, artist and vice-president of design for hardware products at Google, while Susan Magsamen’s work as a neuroscientist and founder of the International Arts and Mind Lab (IAM Lab) has always intrigued him as one of those burgeoning areas of science that sits at the heart of every question we ask about design, architecture and the arts generally – why do they affect us so viscerally, emotionally, spiritually, even physically?

In this episode, we discuss their research into, what they've dubbed as, the neuroarts movement. Tune in to learn more.
