The neural basis of the human dance

Josef Bartos Geen categorie Leave a Comment

In this indepth study the researchers Steven Brown, Michael J. Martinez and Lawrence M. Parsons investigate the human dance with positron emission tomography to identify its systems-level organization. Their final observations imply that dance, as a universal human activity, involves a complex combination of processes related to the patterning of bipedal motion and to metric entrainment to musical rhythms. More broadly, this study brings us closer to a richer understanding of the neural and psychological bases of complex, species-specific creative and artistic behaviors.
