Topic: Science of Music
Music is a particularly peculiar object. It is information rich, elicits activity or emotions, but cannot convey accurate information of any sorts. How and why does music work then? What do scientists have to say about these questions? During last several decades. we have made significant progress in understanding how the brain processes different kinds of information to make sense out of it and build a model of 'reality' to make our lives coherent. We will take a peak at the fascinating world of music cognition through demonstrations and discussions.
