The Research Focus has established aesthetic research by employing facial EMG; behavioral and eye-movement-measures; brain imaging (EEG); causative brain manipulation (TDCS); computer simulation of art museums; and on-site museum and real-world studies. Next steps will include an outreach to the new fMRI by FSP collaborator Lamm, and initiatives to employ VR research, in collaboration with the University of Applied sciences. The focus’ close connections with the Research Platform Cognitive Sciences assures a broad international visibility and an interdisciplinary research basis.
