Music and the Mind

Learn about the brains of music-makers


Learning and playing music, more than almost any other activity, strengthens and preserves brain function.

Moreover, the brain of a musician is markedly different from that of a non-musician! In a multimedia presentation, UAlbany Neuroscientist, Dr. Ewan McNay discusses just how and why this happens and explains how continuing to make music helps keep your brain young.

Amateur musicians, singers, community band and orchestra members - all music makers welcome!Dr. Ewan McNay
