Music and the Mind Symposium + Concerts

If music is a language, it is a language of feeling.

Musical rhythms are life rhythms. Music provokes a response ingrained into our evolutionary development, leads to marked changes in emotions and is viewed as one way to stimulate the brain.

Through music we can learn much about the mind. This symposium is dedicated to Music and the Mind and we’re proud to introduce some of the world leaders in this research field. They will present on recent developments in this interesting and rapidly developing area.

Music and the Mind Symposium to be held on 2nd to 4th March 2018, the brainchild of Prof Michael Nilsson and renowned flautist Sally Walker with internationally renowned Neuroscientist Professor Altenmüller an accomplished flautist as a guest speaker and musician at a series of concerts and presentations.
