Fractal Geometry and Benoit Mandelbrot

If you're interested in the images on this blog and would like to know more about them, visit the Fractal Images page of New York Neurofeedback's website.

You can also watch this wonderful 2008 Nova episode on fractal geometry and its originator, Benoit Mandelbrot (1924-2010). You don't need to be a mathematician to find it fascinating.

   

Fractals are everywhere in nature. Your brain is an immensely complex example of it - that's the relevance to neurofeedback and the reason I chose fractals as the images here and on the NYNF website.

Most people looking at fractal art (look to the right of this post to see a slideshow) find it soothing in a way similar to the way it feels to spend time in nature. Interesting, isn't that?
