Artur Jaschke: Muziek & het Brein

HOSTeD BY The Theater

PlayS On Sunday 5:00 PM - 5:20 PM

You enjoy music, right? But what do we actually know about what music DOES to us? In this talk we will focus on the influence of music on the individual and look at the effects of music on our brain. How does music affect us? What does it do with our state of mind [or: wellbeing] and our functioning? And how does it affect people with certain disorders, such as autism, dementia or depression? Can music play a positive role in dealing with these disorders?
