Minding The Brain
Tuesday March 12th, 2019 with Jim Davies & Kim Hellemans
Beauty and Neuroaesthetics, Alcohol and the Developing Brain

Part I - Beauty and Neuroaesthetics: Many people think beauty is something ephemeral, subject to the arbitrary whims of individual taste and cultural trends. But philosophers have been studying beauty and analyzing it for thousands of years, under the name aesthetics, and some of the first studies in scientific psychology were about our perceptions of beauty. Join us on this episode of Minding the Brain to find out about the scientific study of beauty and the field of neuroaesthetics, featuring special guest, Dr. Anjan Chatterjee! Part II - Alcohol and the Developing Brain: Jim and Kim are joined by special guest Audrey McFarlane to discuss the impact of alcohol on the developing brain. What are the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure? What happens when breastfeeding mothers consume alcohol? Can fetal alcohol syndrome be treated? Find out all this and more, on this episode of Minding the Brain!
