If you listen to music and are fascinated by how it affects human memory, emotion, and health, then this event is for you (this should be everybody)! Come and learn about the expansive field of music cognition from New York University postdoctoral researchers Amy Belfi (NYU), who will speak about musical memory and naming, and Pablo Ripollés Vidal (NYU), who will discuss the role of music in recovery of stroke patients, while also tempering our overwhelming excitement on music and neuroscience with some caution and skepticism. Join us for some music, science, beer, and a game of ‘Name That Tune’ featuring prizes- so start listening!
Following our event will be the regular Thursday night jazz at Ryan's Daughter from 9:30-11:30. This jazz duo features jazz guitarist Gene Bertoncini and double bassist Josh Marcum, with special guests coming in and out throughout the night. All Music on the Brain attendees are invited to stay and enjoy!
