Get to know your inner life in a detailed new way to understand the human anatomy easily. The combination of modern computer art and imaging techniques in medicine allow us to build completely new insights into the “unmovable” anatomy of the human body, and gives us also an understanding of the important functions of the human body and its organs. Prim Univ.-Prof. Dr. Franz A. Fellner from the AKh answers many questions about the brain and provides useful tips for our daily lives: what happens in our thinking organ during stress? Why does my brain power improve through movement? How far can I really trust my brain? How can I control a computer with only the power of my thoughts? And what can I do to be armed against dementia?

Interview

“Why do we sometimes have unnecessary fears, and we’re unable to prevent this? Or maybe we can after all! Why does this happen; what takes place in which parts of the brain? Another interesting question is: What does motion even have to do with the brain? And, conversely, why do things sometimes go awry, and what can possibly be done to prevent that? And where is the center for fun actually located in the brain? That’s a fact—fun does indeed have its own place inside our head!”
In an interview with Ars Electronica Prim. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Franz A. Fellner talks about the new lecture series in Deep Space and about the visualization project, he is currently working on together with Ars Electronica Futurelab.
