MUSSO, Carlos G; DRICAS, Débora  and  GONZALEZ-TORRES, Henry. Applying art to scientific research: Reasons for using an original method. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2018, vol.116, n.5, pp.353-358. ISSN 0325-0075.

Art, by virtue of its symbolic power, may function as a cognitive instrument and even as an aid in the scientific research process, especially in the phase of hypothesis generation and data analysis given its ability to induce creative and intuitive thinking. In this article, we propose a method to put such concept into practice based on the exposure of scientists to collective artistic activities in protected settings, a methodology developed from the experiences described by renowned artists and scientists.

Keywords : Research; Science; Art; Cognition; Symbolism.
