Cleveland Clinic Hosts Lecture on Art and Alzheimer's
The Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is hosting a lecture by Dr. Bruce Miller and Dr. Daniel C. Potts, both of whom are conducting research into the effects of art on an aging mind. Dr. Miller, a professor of neurology and a director of the University of California, San Francisco's Memory and Aging Center, sat down for a few questions before the lecture. “Dr. Jeff Cummings wrote the first paper that I was aware of, and he described an artist whose work went from realism to more surrealistic and then slowly disintegrated. I would say that was in the mid-1980’s”, said Dr. Miller in response to when the relationship between art and neuroscience gained momentum.
