Think Science: The Science of Music
When you hear music, what does it do in your brain? How do we respond to music? Why was it even created in the first place? At this Think Science event, we’ll get into the science—and a little of the philosophy—of music, and try to understand just why humans respond so enthusiastically to twinkly sounds arranged in patterns. We’ll hear from a neuroscience professor who specializes in how the brain responds to music, speak to professor whose research gets into the “why” of music and even ethical issues that come with listening to certain music.
