Led by University of California San Diego researcher Tim Mullen, the new series Mozart & the Mind takes includes presentations by leading scientists and musicians on a variety of topics, including the role of music in therapy and rehabilitation, and in improving focus and treating attention disorders; how advances in cognitive neuroscience and neurotechnology create new possibilities for musical expression; how aging impacts hearing, memory and brain function; and the power of music to heal and to transform lives, reinforced with live music and interactive demonstration. An interactive "Brain-Music Exposition" actively invites audience, scientist and artist communication around a series of exhibits and installations exploring brain-music connections. Among the various exhibitions will be the opportunity for audience members to don state-of-the-art wearable neurotechnology and explore 3-D models of their own brain activity and use their thoughts and feelings to create music. Attendees will walk away not only having heard incredible performances, but will have learned something they can apply to everyday life.
