blog - Núcleo de Experimentos em Neurociências Há alguns instantes, você decidiu pegar esta revista, folhear até esta página e começar a ler este texto. Bem, você não decidiu isso sozinho: pode dividir a responsabilidade com seus ancestrais primitivos, sua mãe, seus amigos, traços imutáveis da personalidade e até com a gente - afinal, escolhemos este assunto imaginando que você ia gostar. E, no futuro, o processo pode incluir um chip na sua cabeça. Parte 1 Como você virou vocêEssa pessoa que você chama de "eu" nem sempre esteve aí. Seus olhos acabam de bater nas manchas pretas que formam as letras desta frase e, como mágica, uma voz surge na sua cabeça. Não há nenhum pensamento dentro de você que ela não conheça. Estudar o "eu" é um desafio para a ciência. Como cantava o miniastro francês Jordy, é duro ser bebê. Essa mistura sensorial, conhecida como sinestesia, ainda não era você.

Shading Tutorial, How to Shade in Drawing index>drawing tutorials >shading tutorial For this shading tutorial I will explain several different techniques on how to shade. Proper shading is important in drawing realistically. Good shading textures and tonal flow can add a lot to a drawing. I buy all of my supplies from Blick Art Materials . Blended Shading- a popular shading method among pencil artists. (blended shading example) Circulism- this is a very popular shading method among artists. (circulism shading example) Blended Circulism- graphite is scribbled onto the paper just as in the last method.

What are the best 'learn to draw' books available Betty Edwards Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, as cited above. Also Kimon Nicolaides's The Natural Way to Draw. Both are exactly and essentially about making marks, and there is a whole corpus of knowledge about conveying information visually. That is why a lot of people suggest John Buscema's How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way. Many people swear by Burne Hogarth's Dynamic series -- Dynamic Figure Drawing, Dynamic Anatomy, Dynamic Light and Shade. George Bridgeman, like Nikolaides, was an important New York Drawing teacher in the early twentieth century. When I was a kid I used to own a book called Drawing the Head and Figure by Jack Hamm. Now three web sites. For the basic human figure try the Figure Drawing Lab. For perspective and composition check out its sister site: Both are academic sites, obviously, connected to the University of Evansville.

A neurocientista de plantão - A neurocientista de plantão - Uma ode ao cérebro Já recebi o vídeo de duas pessoas que não se conhecem (muito obrigada Sérgio e Karina!), mas ele ainda está com "apenas" 35 mil visitas no YouTube desde sua publicação ontem, então talvez você ainda não tenha visto: é a nova criação de John Boswell, que encabeça o Symphony of Science, um projeto que pretende divulgar conhecimentos e filosofia em forma de música. Talvez você ache um pouco irritante o resultado do AutoTune ou algoritmo similar que Boswell usou para transformar as palavras de cientistas do porte de Vilayanur Ramachandran, Oliver Sacks e Carl Sagan em música. De fato, soa um tanto artificial. PS.
