Psyche Loui, assistant professor of psychology at Wesleyan University, discusses how music, as patterns of “intentional sounds,“ come to embody human creativity, express emotions, and encourage social bonding.  Loui is director of Wesleyan's MIND lab (Music, Imaging and Neural Dynamics), where her team has explored the brain networks that enable strong emotional responses to music and observed the effects of training in musical improvisation on brain and cognitive structure and function.

This event is free and open to the public.
