Renée Fleming Presents Music and the Mind
November 29, 2017 | 4PM
Wyatt Rotunda Center, Vanderbilt’s Peabody Campus
1930 South Drive, Nashville, TN 37212
Program co-presented by OZ Arts and Vanderbilt Health
Music is more than entertainment. It is a powerful medium that ignites all areas of the brain simultaneously. Now, scientists and musicians are joining forces as part of the Sound Health Initiative, a partnership between the National Institutes of Health and the Kennedy Center, to study exactly how music affects the brain.
Throughout Ms. Fleming’s journey as an artist, she has been struck by music’s power to heal and transform lives. Her presentation explores the role of music in society, including discoveries that are changing our understanding of the brain, especially for the treatment of cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Ms. Fleming will be joined by Doctors Reyna Gordon and Miriam Lense from Vanderbilt Music Cognition Lab.
Dr. Reyna Gordon is the Director of Vanderbilt Music Cognition Lab, Associate Director of the campus-wide Program for Music, Mind, & Society and Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology and Psychology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Dr. Miriam Lense is co-director of Vanderbilt Music Cognition Lab.
