- Pekka Kuusisto violin
- Professor Dr Erik Scherder neuropsychologist
- Jukka Huitila visual designer
Pekka Kuusisto and Professor Scherder demonstrate the strength and beauty of music when experienced by different human brains; a developing versus an adult brain, a vulnerable brain affected by diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's, and the brain of a patient experiencing pain.
They also explore what, if anything, happens in the brain of a professional violinist and the brain of a musical improviser, look at the possible differences between musical and non-musical brains and explore the involvement of important neural systems when singing.
This event promises to be an exciting and insightful evening!
