Nobel-laureate Dr. Eric R. Kandel is an editor of Principles of Neural Science, the standard textbook in the field. He reached a broad general audience with his 2006 book In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of Mind, and most recently through the Charlie Rose Brain Series on PBS. He has published two books on the intersection of art and science, The Age of Insight: The Quest to Understand the Unconscious in Art, Mind, and Brain, from Vienna 1900 to the Present and his latest, Reductionism in Art and Brain Science: Bridging the Two Cultures. He will speak on the ways neuroscience influences our perception of art.
