Day 2: Neuro 2.0- Futuristic Trends in NeuroTechnology, organised by NeuroTech-X/India
The Narrative Brain – a Neurocinematic approach
This talk discusses our neurocinematic findings on what might be characterised as the narrative brain, which both narrates and makes sense of narratives. Previous neuroimaging experiments have shown that viewers’ time-locked brain activations correlate when engaged with same narrative. In one of our fMRI studies, we identified specific story-content-related brain networks by comparing data collected from subjects viewing a film and others reading a film’s screenplay. We also studied differences in functional brain connectivity when watching a narrative drama film versus viewing a non-narrative experimental film. In yet another experiment we observed neural fingerprint patterns related to cue-based narrative sense-making during specific moments in a long feature film. Using movies as stimuli in neuroimaging experiments may serve as a practical starting point for understanding how human mind makes sense of complex everyday situations more generally. Challenges and directions for the future neurocinematics are discussed.
