"I have always believed art matters so it is exciting to see some scientific evidence to support the view life is enhanced by instantaneous contact with works of art," said Dr Stephen Deuchar
Works of art can give as much joy as being head over heels in love, according to a new scientific study.
"What we are doing is giving scientific truth to what has been known for a long time – that beautiful paintings makes us feel much better.
"But what we didn't realize until we did these studies is just how powerful the effect on the brain is."
- Professor Zeki

I very well may have plagiarized this last poster (it sounds a bit too clever)...but can not for the life of me figure out where from. If you know, please let me know. If it was you, I'm sorry.
