The Complex Relationship of Light, Color and the Brain
Light allows us to experience our world, including art, and different lighting conditions have a profound impact on our overall visual perception.
On Thursday May 16, neurologist Dr. Aziz Shaibani will explain the power light has on the visual perception of art mediated by the brain. Dr. Shaibani will illustrate the physical properties of light and the way the brain processes light and color, providing insight to the complex relationship between light, perception, and art.
Shaibani is a practicing neurologist in Houston who also specializes in neuromuscular medicine and neurophysiology. Dr. Shaibani is the director of Nerve & Muscle Center of Texas and a clinical professor at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Shaibani is also on the board of the the Rothko Chapel.
