Neurocities and Ruinscapes

2023

A team of students led by professors Maurizio Forte, Classical Studies and AAHVS and Leonard White, Neurology, studied the embodied aesthetic experience engendered by real and virtual interactions with archeological ruins (“ruinscapes”) and virtual representations of places, spaces, and cultural artifacts associated with an ancient city. The focus will be the Etruscan/Roman city of Vulci (1000 BCE-400 CE), where the PI has been an active investigator since 2016. The research will employ state-of-the-art/science methods of digital videography, virtual reality, and cognitive neuroscience to achieve this goal.
