Nodes is the independent journal of visual arts and neuroscience of Numero Cromatico, a Roman research center founded in 2011 by a group of researchers specializing in these two disciplines. Nodes is the only periodical in Italy that connects two worlds that hardly meet: art and neuroscience. The protagonist of the periodical is art in all its forms and its encroachments in the world of anthropology, music, perception and aesthetic experience in general.
Nodes is the independent magazine that combines a specialized approach to science with the search for editorial beauty, well represented by risograph printing, design and paper, indispensable in Frab's selection. Born from a group of university enthusiasts, it is now animated by the conscious minds of researchers and experts who have created a lively environment of meetings and in-depth events around Numero Cromatico.

The 17-18 edition of Nodes also marks an important milestone for the magazine that celebrates its first 10 years by giving us once again a magazine full of art in all its forms and its encroachments in the world of theater, literature, architecture, music and the aesthetic experience more generally. All obviously mixed with neuroscience.
In this number:
- Editorial 17-18 - Rethinking art, imagining the future of Dionigi Mattia Gagliardi, editor-in-chief and art director of Nodes: "We are experiencing a historic transition of epochal significance. Over the span of a few years we have found ourselves facing a profound change in the ways in which we experience reality. We live a new relationship with other individuals and with ourselves, but above all we live a new relationship with images. They flow quickly on the screens of our devices, in the network, in a continuous and constant flow. Even now, while your gaze is turned to the pages of this magazine, billions of audiovisual data continue to circulate and be seen by millions of natural and artificial users.i.”;
