Creativity and Motor Cognition - Lectio Magistralis Rizzolati

Creativity and Motor Cognition

Giacomo Rizzolatti, emeritus professor, is the Director of the Research Laboratory on Neuroscience at the CNR in Parma, and he has received many awards, such as the Brain Prize in 2014, the world’s largest prize for brain research. He was the Senior Scientist of the research team who discovered the existence of mirror neurons in the frontal and parietal cortex of macaque monkeys.

The lectio magistralis ‘Creativity and Motor Cognition’ will deal with the role of mirror mechanisms as the base for creative skills, and it will be illustrated how, during perception and creation, the space is able to trigger emotions, through implicit activations of the sensorimotor component. 

The lecture will’be held on February 9th at2 p.m on Zoom. The lecture is free and you can subscribe at this link!
