Rebecca Schaefer: When the brain moves to music (talk)

Music and movement are intricately connected, in our behaviour as well as in the brain. While we can experience musical rhythms in our heads even without sound, beat-based rhythms are also often used to bring people together. In this talk, assistant professor Neuropsychology (Leiden University) Rebecca Schaefer will present some neuropsychological research findings on music in our heads, on experiencing musical rhythm and moving to the beat, and will discuss the broader implications of it for human behaviour.
