Description

“Chariots of Fire: The Scientific Application of Music in Sport and Exercise”
Costas I. Karageorghis, PhD

Like to run/play tennis/hit the gym? Love music? Taking along our earphones and favorite playlists definitely seems to help us step it up. Find out why from an expert widely cited in both academia and the media, with coverage from outlets including Time, Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal. Author of two books and over 80 scholarly articles, Dr. Karageorghis will talk about the science behind the structured and systematic use of music to improve sports performance and enhance the exercise experience.

Presented in cooperation with the Office of Health Services and the Science, Technology and Business Division, Library of Congress
