Beauty and the Brain--Cancelled University Closed

Due to worsening weather conditions, the University will be closed on Wednesday, February 5. (Please note that this is a change from a previously announced late opening).  Classes are cancelled, the Child Care Center at the Saltzman Center and offices are closed.
Essential services for students will remain open.

This event is postponed and will be rescheduled for a future date--as soon as this is confirmed the calendar will be updated.

Dr. Anjan Chatterjee discusses his new book, The Aesthetic Brain: How We Evolved to Desire Beauty and Enjoy Art (Oxford University Press, 2013). Dr. Chatterjee uses neuroscience to probe how an aesthetic sense is etched in our minds and evolutionary psychology to explain why aesthetic concerns feature centrally in our lives. Beauty and the Brain is presented by the Hofstra University Department of Philosophy, Office of Student Leadership and Activities (OSLA), Hofstra University Neuroscience Club  and the Hofstra Cultural Center.
