Poetry of Preception Presents Walt Whitman for Fundamentals of Neuroscience #MusicMonday
Wow – brilliant course, beautiful video series. From The Atlantic:
The Fundamentals of Neuroscience, a MOOC from Harvard University, presents artistic ruminations on the nature of sensation. The eight-part series of animations is called Poetry of Perception—we’ve previously featured work from this project on The Atlantic Video. In this episode, the animator and illustrator Daniela Sherer brings to life an excerpt from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself.”
