The School of Art at MSU will host a discussion on "The Symbolic Significance and Hallucinatory Basis for Irish Megalithic Art Motifs," from 5:10-6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, in Cheever 215. The presentation is a view of the recent work of neurophysicist John Miller, a professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience. Miller will discuss his current studies on sensory systems regarding external stimuli in regard to images on Neolithic structures in Ireland. Miller proposes the possibility that hallucinations may be the inspiration behind the archaeological evidence from Neolithic people.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call Erin Anderson at 994-2562.
