Comicon 2010: This is your brain on comics

The official ComicCon schedule was just released, and it looks like my talk will be Friday 1-2pm, room 26AB. Here’s the official description of the panel:

1:00-2:00 Comics Arts Conference Session #7: This is Your Brain on Comics Theory— Julia Round (Bournemouth University) argues that From Hell relies on a comics aesthetic, in which all panels are co-present in the page’s spatial layout, to represent time as co-present and nonlinear. Neil Cohn (Tufts University) discusses two psychology experiments examining what happens in the brain when people read comics. Room 26AB

I’ll post a more in depth description of my own talk soon, but yes, when it says “brain” it really means it: I’ll be showing data from my brainwave experiment using comics.
