In this episode I sat down with Sally McKay, and we talked about neuroaesthetics, a scientific field that looks at art perception. We chat about the field, her research interests, why the art experience should not be seen as so special or separate from other experiences, and why being irritated by an artwork might not be such a bad thing.

Sally literally left me so fascinated after our conversation and I am excited to share this episode with you. Hope you enjoy!
