Why Our Brains Love Story - A Naturalistic and Scientific Perspective on Storytelling

People tend to believe that watching their favorite television series is a way to escape, ‘zone out,’ and relax, but is there more going on in the brain? An ongoing collaboration between the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) and the Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA) is exploring why we love to sit down with a good book or movie.

Part one of the series is entitled Scientific Story Shaping. This first of its kind experimental workshop will bring together a successful Hollywood Producer, a Hollywood story consultant, a neuroscientist, a drama instructor and an audience to brainstorm the first ever Neuroscientifically designed one act play!
