Les œuvres d’art auraient une incidence positive ou négative sur le cerveau humain. Une équipe du CHUV s’est associée à un artiste pour comprendre et peut-être soigner certains troubles psychiatriques.

The visual arts use optical illusions to convey an impression of spatial movement to viewers.

Inspired by his interest and musings on the manner in which the brain responds to visual stimuli, Youri Messen-Jaschin seeks a scientific, quantifiable and measurable answer to the impressions felt by observers of  Youri “Op Art” works.

By using techniques taken from cognitive psychology, Youri, in collaboration with the neuroimaging laboratory at CHUV, will study the impact and brain interactions of this art. Physiological signals such as heart rate, pupil diameter and brain activity will be measured and recorded on volunteers for this research study.

The aim is to show the impact generated by a specific image with high visual contrast on the vestibular, limbic and cognitive networks, for each individual.

The neuroimaging laboratory performs non-invasive visual imaging using magnetic resonance in order to map out and locate points of brain activity. The use of this technique in participants while viewing Op Art will make it possible to locate the effects produced on the brain during viewing. Thus, the maps generated from participants will be evaluating using known static methods in order to index the common points of activity generated by Op Art.

The image formed in the back of the eye is analyzed point by point then transmitted to the brain in the form of coded signals. This is basically the same for everyone. The visual regions of the brain are the ones that analyze these signals and convey a representation of the object perceived.

The interpretation of this object can sometimes be ambiguous. These “mistakes” in interpretation are optical illusions, which are not perceived in the same way for each of us (we do not have the same “experience” or the same images stored in memory…).
