Sunseri Speaker Series presents Dancing the Neural Tango: The Science of Music and the Brain


Music is an essential and much-loved artistic form, but most people are unaware that it is also a direct channel to the human brain. Vast advances have been made in the development of science-based research, confirming that music serves as a powerful agent to promote neuroplasticity and influence cognitive, motor, and speech/language behaviors. Dr. Martha Summa-Chadwick delivers a talk that fits neatly into the intersection of music, science, technology, and health, with diverse modules demonstrating a variety of positive interactions as the brain entrains to rhythm. The discussion will be accompanied by videos showing the use of music protocols in therapeutic environments, as well as experiential music samples to encourage audience interaction.
