Science Quotes by Semir Zeki (1 quote)
A large number of areas of the brain are involved when viewing equations, but when one looks at a formula rated as beautiful it activates the emotional brainthe medial orbito-frontal cortexlike looking at a great painting or listening to a piece of music. Neuroscience cant tell you what beauty is, but if you find it beautiful the medial orbito-frontal cortex is likely to be involved; you can find beauty in anything.
