Sensoriality Workshop Series – Session 3: Somatosensation
Februar 19 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm CET
About the Series:
This workshop series bridges the artistic community, the neuroscientists, and the general public. EDGE e.V. has collaborated with the Arts Section of the MIND Members Association to propose a series of workshops titled Sensoriality: an Immersive Approach to Art and Neuroscience through our Senses.
In this series, artists and neuroscientists make a joint effort to unfold the complexity of our sensory perceptions while at the same time trying to stimulate them. Therefore, artistic references and the artistic practice itself, together with the scientific research and its divulgation are the essential tools offered in this series.
The participants can experience how knowledge can be transferred in its natural character- dynamically, where art pieces open a free communication space between the observer and object, and in which their creative skills will be triggered.
Through diverse and immersive sessions, we are going to open up a playful space for Science, sensorial perception and creativity, to blur the border between the claimed disciplines.
Session 3: Somatosensation
- Neuroscience: Dr. Fred Schwaller
- Art: Julia Schneider/ Eliana Araque
The somatosensory system is one of the traditional five senses of our central nervous system: including the sensation of touch, pain, pressure, temperature, and tension. It is therefore an aggregate of thermoreceptors, photoreceptors, mechanoreceptors, and chemoreceptors that process essential sensory modalities allowing us to feel the world around us.
Unique to the somatosensory system is that it sends information to the central nervous system about both – external and internal sensory environments. In a highly textured world – how does our brain process images and how do we deal with these „body images“?
Not only physically but also emotionally?
How deep is the impression of a sensation and what influenced this impression?
Can we actively alter the intensity of an impression?
Limited spaces (20) for the in-person events. It will also be streamed live.
Participants can sign up for individual sessions, or purchase an attendance pack. For MIND Members, there is an entry on donation.
