Psyche Loui (Wesleyan University): Why do we enjoy music?

What gives some people a chill when they are moved by a piece of music? How does connectivity in the brain enable or thwart musical perception? Can music be used to help with psychiatric and neurological disorders? These are questions that Dr. Loui tackles in her laboratory, the MIND Lab (Music, Imaging and Neural Dynamics). In this talk, she will explore what musical behavior tells us about emotion and creativity.
