My talk “Neurocinematics & Art-Science Collaboration” concerned the first hand knowledge gained from several collaborative projects in which I have worked as a consulting film expert, and my own neurocinematic projects in which I have functioned as the principal investigator. I highlighted the diversity of issues one faces in collaborations between artists and scientists. Especially interesting was to reflect conceptual, technological and methodological differences between arts and sciences. The discussion ranged from conceptual to technological issues, however the focus on challenges such as finding shared language, working methods, best division of labor and responsibilities and authorship.
