About Music and the Brain
Begun in 2006, the SiCa Center for Arts, Science and Technology's Symposium on Music and the Brain has become an internationally renown and respected interdisciplinary meeting of the world's finest scholars, researchers and practitioners exploring the neuroscience of music.
Past symposia have focused on: brainwave entrainment - how the brain responds to rhythmic stimuli (2006), music, rhythm and the brain - the psychophysical and physiological effects of musical rhythm (2007), emotion from a wide range of perspectives - including the role of pitch, rhythm, timbre, prosody and performance on emotional response to music (2008), and spontaneity and improvisation (2009).
In 2010, Music and the Brain will take the form of a forum featuring talks by Dr. Aniruddh D. Patel, Dr. Mark Tramo MD, and Dr. Petr Janata.
