The perception of sound and music, one of the most intimate and personal human experiences, as deep as thought itself, has been key to the evolution of our species and it could also be key to creating an individual who is more conscious of themselves and their surroundings, an individual with a global ecological conscience. This cross-disciplinary lecture explores the relationship between music and health and the impact at individual and social levels. In light of recent neuroscientific research, we will discover the cognitive mechanisms of perception of music, the relationship between rhythm, movement and health, the brain mechanisms that link music, pleasure and emotion, and the ways music improves our quality of life, leads to wellness, happiness and provides us a sense of purpose and meaning in life.

Dr. Caicedo’s presentation is free to attend. To receive CME, attendees should register for and attend the full-day UR Department of Medicine Research in DEI & Healthcare Equity Symposium
