STALKING THE MUSICAL BRAIN
Why do we respond so strongly to music? Have you heard of the Wekinator? Join MIT neuroscientists, musicians and composers on a journey to explore what happens to our brains in the presence of music.
Boston’s premiere music ensemble Dinosaur Annex presents brand new works by MIT’s Charles Shadle, Italian composer/researcher Michele Zaccagnini, and MIT student composers. Hear MIT neuroscientist Joshua McDermott tell us about his recent trail-blazing work that discovered brain pathways that respond just to music.
