Music has been a wonderful tool to investigate the interconnection between brain science, psychology, and human experience.

Cognitive neuroscientists and musicians Jamshed Bharucha and Charles Limb join music therapy pioneer Concetta Tomaino and jazz pianist Vijay Iyer to discuss the ability of music to both heal and elicit specific emotions at the interface of body, mind, and memory, while examining the neurological basis of some of the most prized functions of the human mind, including creativity and aesthetic judgment.
