Music surrounds us undefined but why does this art form take such a dominant role in our lives? What happens in our mind when we hear music and how does it effect our emotions? Even with passive listening to music, specific parts of the brain can show activation or increased “neural” activity. What is it about music that can so dramatically affect brain activity?  Are there things that we can learn from music, and its effect on the brain that can help treat people with neurological and cognitive disorders?  These are questions that our featured panel will discuss on March 13, 2013 at Hughes Auditorium.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
