Art Gives Same Level of Pleasure as Being in Love - National Art Pass 

 

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: New resarch by leading neuroscientist Professor Zeki has concluded that what happens in our brains when we view art is more than just good for your health - and can have a big impact on the nation's happiness.  In a series of pioneering brain-mapping experiments, Semir Zeki, Professor of Neurobiology and Neuroaesthetics at University College London, has revealed that viewing art can give just as much pleasure as being in love. Zeki concluded that viewing art triggers a surge of the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine into the orbito-frontal cortex of the brain, resulting in feelings of intense pleasure. "There have been very significant new advances in our understanding of what happens in our brains when we look at works of art," said Zeki. 'We have recently found that when we look at things we consider to be beautiful, there is increased activity in the pleasure reward centres of the brain. Essentially, the feel-good centres are stimulated, similar to the states of love and desire."
