Title: Art and the Brain – a UNC-Duke cross-collaborative interdisciplinary conversation evening, Seminar One: Music and the Brain
As part of the Carolina Seminars program, this event brings together faculty from the Departments of Psychology, Psychiatry, English and Comparative Literature, Music, Neurology, and Art and Art History and explores a unique aspect of our human shared experience. Art, creativity, neurology, and psychiatry may seem divergent disciplines but their connections to brain function and brain disorders are a common feature. Reciprocally, art explores new ideas, metaphors, and conceptions that contribute to the ways we understand the world and the brain.
The first of this seminar series will focus on Music and the Brain, with panelists Natasha Parikh (Psychology of Music), David Garcia (Ethnomusicology), Heidi Roth (Neurology), Flavio Frohlich (Neuroscience and Music), as well as an open panel.
