Psychiatria Danubina, Vol.25 No.2 June 2013. -

What are the necessary and sufficient conditions to experience pleasure in interpersonal communication and dealing with art,

science, and philosophy – this is what the theory of informational needs TIN suggested eleven years ago is about. At the same time,

at the beginning of this century, several lines of research have emerged. Neuroaesthetics has been established; the discovery of the

mirror neuron system and theories about its function have appeared; a growing interest in positive affect and pleasure has developed

in psychiatry and medicine. The purpose of the present paper is to reconsider the TIN Branković 2001 in the context of the advance

in neuroscience during the last decade and to show how much conceptual clarity is gained when the recent empirical and theoretical

findings are viewed from the standpoint of the TIN. A computational model of the aesthetic response based on the TIN’s two-factor

model of hedonic value of stimuli is delineated.
