Brain keys in the appreciation of beauty: A tale of two worlds

Functional connectivity can be defined as the statistically temporal dependency of neuronal activation patterns of anatomically separated brain regions. The analysis of functional connectivity can lead to brain networks. Here, we report the result of an experiment that has shown two different brain networks related with the appreciation of beauty, corresponding to different time spans in the cognitive processes implied. We describe and discuss such networks, as well as their eventual evolutionary meaning. © 2014 Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei.
