Mathematics: Why the brain sees maths as beauty
Tina Miller, MA,CFLE stashed this in connection
Mathematicians were shown "ugly" and "beautiful" equations while in a brain scanner at University College London.
The same emotional brain centres used to appreciate art were being activated by "beautiful" maths.
The researchers suggest there may be a neurobiological basis to beauty.
I never thought of the concept of "ugly" equations.
Information theory has a concept of "elegance".
