Course Description

This is a series of eight lectures that broadly looks at medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and quackery through the use of the visual arts: paintings, sculpture, rarely seen video clips, and vintage advertisements. The lectures survey medicine from ancient times through the modern era. There is a heavy emphasis on topics such as migraine, epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, MRI, and general neuroscience, all seen through the lens of art. It is a unique and unconventional journey through topics of interest to the lay public that illustrates and explains obscure subjects by way of exploring the world of art. For the nonphysician, it is a new look at artworks that we studied in college art history courses and that we have seen in museums. For the physician and neuroscientist, it is a bridge from the world of science into the realm of the arts. The lectures are full of many surprises. The intent of the series is to be thought-provoking, satisfying, and just plain fun. | Lecture + Q&A.
