Transdisciplinary Collaborations in Neuroscience, Art and Related Therapeutics
October 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Transdisciplinary collaboration is the future of knowledge-making in advanced post-industrial societies, and there is a growing awareness that the most vexing problems we face cannot be solved by any single discipline. Current best practices for complex and challenging physical and mental disorders require a multi-disciplinary approach, yet there remains a void in bridging the gap between the most contemporary models. The profession of art therapy embraces the variances of subjective artistic expression and its value in representing more completely the psyche of the individual, while neuroscientists typically strive for precise data acquisition in advancing the understanding of brain structures and functions. This talk is about the collaboration between neuroscience, art, and therapeutics, with a focus on how cognitive neuroscience informs art therapy theory, applications, and research for people who endure psychological stress and trauma.
