A musician and a neuro physiologist will discuss how music has an effect on people who interact with it.
The discussion will culminate with a networking event where people who work in the Sciences can meet and talk to their opposite numbers from the Arts. The event is delivered in collaboration with the Dennis Rosen Trust, and will be taking place for the fourth year at MERGE.
About The Dennis Rosen Trust:
THE DENNIS ROSEN TRUST
The Dennis Rosen Trust exists to foster both greater understanding of art by scientists and of science by artists. This applies to every area of scientific and artistic endeavour. For artists, it is both to make the basic areas of science intelligible to them so that they might act as materials for artistic development, and also to encourage artists to tackle scientific themes directly. For scientists it is to encourage thinking about the human and ethical dimensions of their work and also to encourage better writing by scientists, as well as a deeper appreciation of non-scientific culture.
These two important communities will have a place to meet, exchange ideas, and perhaps even kick start some collaborative projects.
