My 3D project :: Brain Study :: Josh RItenour

The areas of the brain that I have made efforts to focus attention throughout my creative processes are:

Occipital Lobe: one of the lobes of the cerebelum, situated at the back of the skull. The occipital lobe contains the primary visual cortex, where visual information is processed.

Hippocampus: means "sea horse", and is named for its shape. It is one of the oldest parts of the brain, and is buried deep inside, within the limbic lobe. The hippocampus is important for the forming, and perhaps long-term storage, of associative and episodic memories. Specifically, the encoding of face-name associations, the retrieval of face-name associations, the encoding of events, the recall of personal memories in response to smells.
