NeuroCine focuses on studying filmmaking and related brain functions

NeuroCine seeks for new insights to the intersubjectively shared functions of the human brain. The multi-disciplinary team combines methods and approaches of cinema and cognitive neurosciences. The purpose is two-fold:  to unravel the neural basis of filmmakers creative imagination and to examine to what extent subjects share emotive-cognitive experiences while viewing films. Advanced data-analysis methods allow quantifying similarities between brain signals of subjects perceiving narrative stimuli of cinema-scale durations.

The research is conducted in the framework of the neuroscience project aivoAALTO at Aalto University.
