What can the Psychology of Perception and Visual Neuroscience tell us about Palaeolithic Art?

4:00pm to 5:00pm, Psychology L47, Dr Derek Hodgson, York University

Several aspects of the depiction of animals in Palaeolithic art can potentially be explained by certain perceptual criteria relating to how the visual brain functions. In this presentation, the graphic devices employed in Upper Palaeolithic depictions will therefore be explored in the context of the psychology of visual perception, embodied cognition and the evolution of the visual system. The aim is to demonstrate how the psychology of perception can provide useful insights into the way animals were portrayed in particular ways over an extended period in Europe and other parts of the world.
