Human Connections this Christmas
In this time of social distancing and virtual relationships, it is more important than ever to remember the power of connection. Images of intimate touch—between parents and children, lovers, and friends—have the power to build better bonds and connections, even in our world that is becoming more and more virtual.
Art historian Annabel Howard and neuroscientist Dr Helena Boschi will use iconic works from art history to explore how our brains and bodies are designed to connect with others. You will discover how our neural responses to art and images foster chemical changes in the brain, fuelling our ability to make meaningful connections in a digital world.
