Symposium in Neurosciences and Music

Chair: Prof. Stefan Koelsch

A vast variety of recent neuroscientific data indicate that although music listening or music making is often characterized as byproduct of our culture, it is actually well-grounded in the function and structure of our brains. The aim of this symposium is to present the state of the art of neuroscientific research regarding the effects of music listening or making on the brain. Additionally, approaches that highlight the applicability of music making in salutary interventions will be introduced and thoroughly discussed.
