Susan Magsamen is the founder and executive director of the International Arts + Mind Lab (IAM Lab), Center for Applied Neuroaesthetics, a pioneering neuroaesthetics initiative from the Pedersen Brain Science Institute at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In addition to her role at IAM Lab, she is the co-director of the NeuroArts Blueprint project in partnership with the Aspen Institute. She is also the author of Impact Thinking, an interdisciplinary translational research model, and co-author of the New York Times Bestseller, Your Brain on Art: How the Arts Transform Us written for the general public. Susan’s work focuses on how the arts and aesthetic experiences measurably change the brain, body and behavior and how this knowledge can be translated to inform health, wellbeing and learning programs in medicine, public health and education. Susan Magsamen’s work lies at the interdisciplinary intersection of science, art, and aesthetic experiences. Her presentation will explore the science of neuroaesthetics, the study of how the arts and aesthetic experiences measurably change the brain and body and how this knowledge can be translated into practices that advance health, wellbeing, learning, flourishing, and community development. The science of the arts is providing groundbreaking research and practical applications emerging at an unprecedented pace.
