Join Ani Patel, a neuroscientist whose work focuses on music cognition, music-language relations, rhythmic processing, and cross-species studies of music cognition. His book, Music, Language, and the Brain, challenges the widespread belief that music and language are processed independently.
Hosts of the Words and Sounds series will lead a discussion and Q&A with Dr. Patel, drawing on what we’ve learned and shared in the past salons and deepening our understanding of the topic through neuroscience research.
Come with your own curiosity and questions on all things music, language, and cognition for this intimate discussion.
