Brainwaves: the Neuroscience of Making and Appreciating Music in Splash Spring 16
Why do we enjoy music? What makes music so emotionally powerful? What drives us to make and listen to music? In this course on the neuroscience of music, we will discuss how the physical properties of sound are translated into signals in the brain, how the brain perceives the higher-level information -- including rhythm and melody -- that makes a sequence of sound "music", and lastly, how music affects our daily lives.
