Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Humans have appreciated and created symmetric objects in all ages and cultures. Why does symmetry attract us so much? In this special issue of Symmetry, we focus on visual symmetry. We call for papers to gather behavioral and neuroimaging evidence for visual symmetry to attract, influence and bias humans and animals preference, and decision-making, in hope to deepen understanding of our appreciation of symmetry.
