The Improvising Brain Keynote Address
Monday, April 8, 2013 at 11:00 AM (EDT)
The Improvising Brain project involves a symposium that will explore how music and decision making involved in improvisation relate to brain processes. Are note choices during improvisation and word choices during speech controlled by similar decision making processes? Is it the sound or the motor movements that drive the choices? How do the environment and the underlying musical structure affect these decisions? The symposium will explore these questions and others related to music perception, production, and their underlying cognitive processes.
For further information about the symposium, please visit their website. The keynote address will be given by Dr. Robert Zatorre of the Montreal Neurological Institute. Dr. Zatorre's talk is entitled "When the Brain Plays Music: Perception, Production, and Emotion." Register for this event by clicking the "Register" button above.
