Uri Hasson: Neuroscience of Storytelling Latest Research

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 7, 12:18 PM

Uri Hasson is the neuroscientist at Princeton University who several years ago did the research using MRIs showing the brain entrainment that happens between a storyteller and a listener.

 

This was breakthrough research into the neuroscience of storytelling. Now here is his latest TED talk where he shares his additional research on the topic.

 

Hasson talks about expanding the research beyond 1 storyteller to 1 listener to 1 storyteller to 5 listeners and what they discovered.

 

He also discusses more about the brain entrainment that happens, how meaning is created, and what happens when people from different cultures listen to the same story.

 

It's fascinating and you will want to take notes. In fact, you'll have to go slowly through the video because Hasson has a strong accent and it's sometimes hard to comprehend what he is saying. Kind of proving his points in a way.

 

So go grab this and bring it into your stash on the neuroscience of storytelling.

The untapped potential of visual storytelling with Cartoonist Scott McCloud

The untapped potential of visual storytelling with Cartoonist Scott McCloud | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
It’s hard to imagine someone who better understands the power of visual
storytelling than Cartoonist Scott McCloud. He has been called the
"Aristotle of Comics” and his non-fiction work, which details the history,
vocabulary, and methods of the medium of comics— is the a Bible for visual
storytellers. "Understanding Comics" has been translated into 16 languages
and was named a New York Times Notable Book. He recently returned to
fiction with the graphic novel, “The Sculptor” and it has been met with
wide critical acclaim. Scott has lectured at Pixar, Google, and the
Smithsonian Institution and I learned in our conversation that he’s also an
amazingly sincere, accessible and friendly guy with an enormous attention
to detail and a great story to tell.
