Music & the Mind: Strengthening the Developing and Aging Brain through Musical Exploration.
Dr. Larry Sherman has over 80 publications related to brain development and neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Dr. Sherman, a musical neuroscientist at the Oregon Health and Science University, provides insights into some of the most exciting brain research in recent years – the connection between music, brain development and the ways music can prevent or delay brain aging and help patients with damage to the brain. In this multi-media experience, Dr. Sherman mixes musical performances, humor and neuroscience to reveal the amazing connection between music and human brain function.
