Music and the Brain
Lecture no. 29 from the course: Understanding the Brain
Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
The ability to write, read, and perform music requires the coordinated activity of the sensory, motor, language, and limbic systems of the brain. Studies of musicians who have suffered strokes have identified specific brain areas involved in both the composition and appreciation of different features of music, such as rhythm.
