Music and the Brain

With Dr. Psyche Loui and Special Guests:     The Nor’easters!

When: Monday, November 17rd at 7 p.m.

Where: 168 Snell Engineering
Listen and enjoy some Lily’s Pasta

Summary: 
Dr. Loui is a professor at Wesleyan University, specializing in research on music’s involvement and connection with the brain. 

Research in my lab aims to understand the networks of brain structure and function that enable musical processes: auditory and multisensory perception, learning and memory of sound structure, sound production, and the human aesthetic and emotional response to sensory stimuli. Tools for this research include electrophysiology, structural and functional neuroimaging, noninvasive brain stimulation, and psychophysical and cognitive experiments as motivated by the following questions:

  1. How do humans perceive and produce music?
  2. How do expectations develop?
  3. How do structural and functional connectivity in the brain enable perception and action?
  4. How can music be used to understand the brain and to help people with neurological and psychiatric disorders”
