Directed by Pia Tikka and Elen Lotman


Our interdisciplinary team seeks for new insights to the filmmaking and film viewing, combining creative methods of cinema, enactive media, gaming and XR  with those of social and cognitive neurosciences to unravel new aspects of the neural basis of storytelling, creative imagination, and narrative comprehension. In addition to contributing to academic research on human mind, our research contributes to a range of more specifically targeted goals, such as the impact of audiovisual media on its audience for artistic, therapeutic, or commercial  implementations, to name few of many.
