Chicago Council on Science and Technology presents
Music and the Brain

Music surrounds us -- 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.

- Neelum Aggarwal MD, Associate Professor of neurological sciences, Rush University Medical Center and KV 265 Board member
- Dr. Hans C. Breiter, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Scientific Director of the Warren Wright Adolescent Center, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

    I really want to come out to a Science event, but I keep missing them! I just got a job that ends at 7 every night, so I can't make this one either :(

    Read fascinating book on this a few years ago - This is Your Brain on Music by Daniel J. Levitin. Really want to go! Can't make it during week though.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
