Bill Griesar and Jeff Leake, Psychology instructors, created nwnoggin.org, an expanding partnership with K-12 schools; universities including PSU, WSU Vancouver, OHSU, and PNCA; and nonprofit community organizations. They’ve worked with university students to teach about art and the brain in classrooms and the homeless youth organization P:ear. Griesar and Leake also helped put together “The Nature of Seeing” gallery at the Portland Art Museum, which introduces visitors to the neuroscience of vision as part of the “Seeing Nature” exhibit which runs through Jan. 10. With artist Mia Nolting, they also created a visitor guide to exploring the exhibit and what happens in the brain when visitors view depth, color, form and more.
