The 2012 Brotherton Lecture: Music in the Brain
8 March 2012
Professor Isabelle Peretz from the International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research (BRAMS), University of Montreal.
Of all the performing arts, music is the most mysterious. Why and how music works on our brain will be the focus of this talk. The study of musical emotions plays a crucial role in this neurobiological perspective. Indeed, musical emotions are inherent to experiences of music and may account for its ubiquity, its therapeutic effects and its benefits to cognitive functioning.
