What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

This webinar provides an introduction to the ways in which the human brain enables musical experiences. Everyday experiences that people have with music, such as music-evoked remembering, feeling in the groove, having music playing in your head and experiencing pleasure are explained in terms of underlying psychological mechanisms and the ways in which these manifest in the brain.

Participants will be encouraged to transcend notions of brain areas devoted to either hearing or playing music, and to instead think and learn about the brain’s functional neuroanatomy. Neuroanatomy integrates the psychological mechanisms of perception, action, attention, memory and emotion that ultimately shape how we experience music at any given moment in time. The format for the webinar is a lecture followed by a question and answer period.

Note: This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for 90 days.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: If you have a computer with a broadband connection (320 kbps minimum), web browser, and sound capabilities (microphone and speakers or headset), you will be able to view the webinar and participate in the Q&A period. Recommended System Requirements: Windows 8.1 or Mac OSX 10.5 or higher, and browsers version Internet Explorer 6, Firefox 3, Safari 4, and Chrome 11 or higher.
