Combining accessibility with deeper reflection, this book explains how shifts at the molecular and cellular level affect sensory and motor behavior, and shows how media art can be used to demystify the complexity of the central and peripheral nervous system.

Neuromedia addresses the interface between neuroscience research and media art education. First, it helps the public understand how shifts at the molecular and cellular level affect our sensory and motor behavior. Second, it shows how media art can be used to demystify the complexity of our central and peripheral nervous system. Selected scientists from the University of Zurich write directly about their own particular research: Stephan Neuhauss on the visual system, Esther Stoeckli on molecular and neural development, Reinhardt Dummer on the survival of neuroecto-dermal cells and UVB damage and Rolf Pfeiffer on attempts to understand sensorimotor coordination and behavior through electronic mimicry. For each contribution, Jill Scott documents how layered media narratives can reflect upon this research in very novel ways and how interaction design can be used as a stimulus to bring neuroscience closer to the general public. Social science theorist, Claudia Ruetsch, discusses in her introduction how art can be a unique creative approach to incorporate in scientific communication. Neuromedia gives an accessible overview of specific aspects of neuroscience research and at the same time is a deeper reflection about its trans-disciplinary potentials.

Jill Scott was born in 1952, in Melbourne, Australia and has been working and living in Switzerland since 2003. Currently she is Professor for Research in the Institute Cultural Studies in Art, Media and Design at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZhdK) in Zürich and Co-Director of the Artists-in-Labs Program (a collaboration with the Ministry for Culture, Switzerland) which places artists from all disciplines into physics, computer, engineering and life science labs to learn about scientific research and make creative interpretations. She is also Vice Director of the Z-Node PHD program on art and science at the University of Plymouth, UK-a program with 16 international research candidates. Her recent publications include: Artists-in-labs Processes of Inquiry: 2006 Springer/Vienna/New York, and Coded Characters Hatje Cantz 2002, Ed. Marille Hahne. Her education includes: PhD, University of Wales (UK) MA USF, San Francisco, as well as a Degree in Education (Uni Melbourne) and a Degree in Art and Design (Victoria College of the Arts). Since 1975, she has exhibited many video artworks, conceptual performances and interactive environments in USA, Japan, Australia and Europe. Her most recent works involve the construction of interactive media and electronic sculptures based on studies she has conducted in neuroscience- particularly the somatic sensory system artificial skin (e-skin) 2003-2007 and on neuro-rentinal behaviour in relation to human eye disease (The Electric Retina-2008) and on dermatome and skin behaviour in relation to the "skin" of the landscape and UV radiation (Dermaland- 2009).
