Exhibiting artist, Jeff Leake & company share the neuroscience behind how the human brain creates meaning from narrative at this interactive lecture.

MORE: At this event, The Neuroscience of Narrative, artist Jeff Leake joins Dr. Bill Griesar (PSU, OHSU, NWNoggin) to present the biology that underlies how humans create meaning through narrative. Storytelling in combination with sensory and past experience profoundly shapes human’s understanding of the world. This suggests that our brain constantly makes predictions about the world. In Leake’s work, he explores the interplay between cultural narratives and human relationships to encourage a nuanced understanding of human interaction and storytelling. A creative activity and brain specimens are included in this unique presentation.
