This article in Wired’s website “Beauty Affects Men’s and Women’s Brains Differently” caught my eye because of a recent discussion about how women and men process visual art differently. (Apparently there are studies that show a difference in the way men and women process music too.) But more interesting than the difference in how we process art –as everything is perhaps processed differently from person to person– was this line about how Camilo Cela-Conde, the researcher in the article, believes aesthetics could actually be a byproduct of other cognitive tasks.

Here is another article on the same study: Beauty is in the brain of the beholder… but more so if you’re a woman” again, it’s interesting to note that although men and women process art differently –at the end of the day thier defintion of beauty was the same.
