What happens in your brain when you compose music? What is the neurology of improvising a jazz riff? Why do our brains crave music? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with LARRY S. SHERMAN, professor of neuroscience at the Oregon Health and Science University. Joining him will be musician and teacher DENNIS PLIES, who was a music Professor at Western Pacific University. Together they have written a fascinating book titled EVERY BRAIN NEEDS MUSIC: THE NEUROSCIENCE OF MAKING AND LISTENING TO MUSIC.
