Music and sounds from the brain

On May 23, scientists and musicians will meet in the CCCB to present a new way to understanding how the brain works through music.

The human brain responds to melody and rhythm by changing the connections between neurons, and now science and technology will allow us to see this process in real time in the show "Brain on stage", which will take place on May 23 from 7 to 8.30 pm in the Auditorium of the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (Montalegre 5, Barcelona).

The neural regions responsible of melody and rhythm recognition have a direct connection with the limbic system, the source of our fears and our dreams. This ancestral connection will be seen in 3 dimensions and listened in real time through the work of the researchers of the laboratory Synthetic Perceptive, Emotive and Cognitive Systems (SPECS) from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

During the same event, we will also hear a selection of "Sound Fictions" created by more than 300 young adults in the workshops "Sounds, science and technology" and follow up the activities that are carried out in the KiiCS European project (Knowledge, Innovation and Incubation in Creation for science) that explores how to encourage innovation and creation by the intersection between art and science.

Free admission, previous inscription at kiics@upf.edu
