Inner vision : an exploration of art and the brain by Semir Zeki( Book )
12 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Inner Vision is the first attempt to relate art to the way in which the visual brain functions. Using a range of examples from artists including Michaelangelo, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Magritte, Malevich, and Picasso, Semir Zeki takes the reader on an aesthetic tour of the brain. He describes in compelling detail how different areas of the brain respond to elements of the visual arts such as colour, form, line, and motion, and argues that our experience of art relates strongly to how the brain works."--Jacket
A vision of the brain by Semir Zeki( Book )
22 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beskrivelse: This new benchmark publication comes from one of the world's foremost researchers on vision and the brain. The cerebal cortex is the most complicated piece of matter in the known universe, and is responsible for all the higher behavioral functions that help define us as human. A Vision of the Brain is the most sustained attempt made so far to explain how the cortex works both with specific reference to vision, and generally. At a level accessible to those beginning studies in neuroscience, this exciting book explores the unfolding of our understanding, as a detective story, of how the visual cortex works, which in turn gives us a vision of how the brain works as a whole. Illustrated throughout in two colors, and examining both normal and abnormal functions, this book will be of major interest to neurologists, psychologists, ophthalmologists and neuroscientists.Authored by one of the world's foremost authorities on the biology of the brainIllustrated in two colours throughoutContains a section of full-colour graphicsA benchmark text for students and researchers alike
Splendors and miseries of the brain : love, creativity, and the quest for human happiness by Semir Zeki( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work examines the elegant and efficient machinery of the brain, showing that by studying music, art, literature, and love, we can reach important conclusions about how the brain functions. It discusses creativity and the search for perfection in the brain; examines the power of the unfinished and why it has such a powerful hold on the imagination; discusses Platonic concepts in light of the brain; shows that aesthetic theories are best understood in terms of the brain; discusses the inherited concept of unity in love using evidence derived from the world literature of love; addresses the role of the synthetic concept in the brain (the synthesis of many experiences) in relation to art, using examples taken from the work of Michelangelo, Cezanne, Balzac, Dante, and others
Law and the brain by Semir Zeki( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Applying our new found knowledge from neuroscience to the discipline of law seems a natural development - the making, considering, and enforcing of law of course rests on mental processes. However, there are real issues that the legal system will face as neurobiological studies continue to relentlessly probe the human mind. This volume represents the first serious attempt to address questions of law as reflecting brain activity, emphasizing that it is the organization and functioning of the brain that determines how we enact and obey laws

Glanz und Elend des Gehirns : Neurobiologie im Spiegel von Kunst, Musik und Literatur by Semir Zeki( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wie kommt die Idee des Künstlers auf die Leinwand? Warum ist es so schwer, ein perfektes Werk zu schaffen, die wahre Liebe, das grosse Glück zu finden? Warum bleiben Werke unvollendet und werden gerade so zu Meilensteinen der Kultur? Neurobiologisch erforscht ist, wie Nervenzellen Sinneseindrücke verarbeiten, wie Botenstoffe im Gehirn Verliebtsein und Lust steruern. Wie aber funktioniert das Gehirn, wenn es um Ideen und Ideale, die Liebe, die Schönheit schlechthin geht? Hier kann die Neurobiologie von den Schönen Künsten und dem kreativen Schaffen lernen, behauptet Semir Zeki. Mit Werken von Michelangelo, Cézanne, Balzac, Thomas Mann, Richard Wagner u.a. führt er uns zu einem tieferen Verständnis, wie unser Gehirn die Welt erfasst. Prof. Semir Zeki lehrt Neurobiologie und Neuroästhetik am University College, London
