The musician in me: a biological perspective

Harris, R. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Music is not only art. It is also biology. The unique characteristics of the brain which make it possible for us to sing a melody and to dance, give to music the unparalleled ability not only to stimulate body movement, but also to move us emotionally. Music is not only beautiful, it is who we are.
