Children’s Museum of Houston

Brain On Art Digital data collection

Tuesday, Jun. 14, 2016 – Saturday, Jun. 18, 2016


The Children’s Museum of Houston is collaborating with Dr. Pepe Contreras-Vidal and his team of University of Houston graduate students to collect data on brain activity associated with the creative process of producing and contemplating visual artwork.

 You're invited to be a part of this ground-breaking research as you create art while wearing non-invasive brain-sensing technology!  ​During the workshop, three participants, outfitted with brain sensing caps or headbands, will create original artwork as a team.  Check out past  Your Brain On Art events!
