“Understanding what makes a work of art beautiful might be an important clue into the workings of the human brain, a scientist reported on Thursday. In an article in the latest issue of the journal Science, Semir Zeki proposed a new field of science — neuroesthetics — which would study the relationship between art and the brain. ‘Visual art obeys the laws of the visual brain, and thus reveals these laws to us,’ he wrote. Artists have a way of tapping into the parts of the brain that are stimulated by art, said Zeki, a professor of neurobiology at University College London.”
