Study: The Brain Is Stimulated By Genuine Art | Intuition | Scoop.it
When it comes to art, only the real deal will do, according to a study into fake paintings.

Oxford University academics found that the brain responds differently to artwork depending on whether it is said to be authentic, or merely a good imitation.

The findings show that reaction to art is "not rational" as the viewer reacts to what they are told about a piece of work - regardless of whether it truly is genuine.
