Visual versus Frontal Cortex
Challenge series hosted by Xscream. Challenges start on Wednesdays.
What do you see, and why do you like it? One can like one picture very much, whereas a very similar picture may not appeal to you. The input is all managed by the Visual cortex in the brain. However, how much you like it is determined in the frontal cortex. This series can range from abstract themes to very daily subjects.
