July 31, 2023

What happens in your brain when you listen to a sad song? Does listening to jazz or classical music affect your brain differently? Does listening to music make you smarter? On this episode of 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.
