MUSIC + MEDICINE
Your Brain on Music:  Neuroscience and the intersection of music, the mind and wellness

What part of the brain lights up when you listen to music or play music? What happens to your brain when you listen to music? ​Does music affect your mood, health or your memory? Can you really get smarter by listening to classical music? Over the years, as scientists have studied the effects of music on brain function, it has become understood that people have a deeper and more complex response to music, over simple everyday noise or speech.

Artistic Director Ixi Chen works with Neuroscientists Dr. John Tew and Neuroradiologist Lily Wang MD, MPH and Todd Florin MD, MSCE to explore these questions. We examine the brains of cellist Ted Nelson and soprano Kemper Florin with both cinematic and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).   The MRIs depict brain activity by detecting changes in blood flow as the musicians listen to, visualize and actually make music!

Thanks to the University of Cincinnati Department of Radiology, Dr. John Tew, Dr. Lily Wang, Dr. Todd Florin and Dr. Bruce Aronow for their help in making this concert possible.
