      EVENT DETAILS
      OLLI at UVM Music and the Mind with James Stewart

      Why do humans respond to music so quickly and viscerally? How are our brains “wired for sound”? In this course, we’ll explore how music has been utilized in our culture and in our history. We’ll experience audio experiments and illusions for ourselves and see if we can trust our own ears. We’ll look at cutting-edge research and discuss some of the latest efforts of music therapy. Along the way, we’ll talk about ancient graffiti, Mozart’s starling and answer the question, how do you get rid of a pesky ear-worm? If you want to know how all of this connects then come experience this multi-media lecture based on the podcast “Timeline” from VPR Classical.
