New Paper: Dynamics of aesthetic experience are reflected in the default-mode network

 

Aesthetic experiences unfold over time, even when the artwork does not change. How does the brain create these dynamic experiences? Our new paper published in NeuroImage provides evidence that a key to these dynamics lies in the distinction between parts of the brain that respond to the outside world, versus those that look inward at ourselves.
