Bringing together jazz music and science as we celebrate the way that music affects our brains and bodies.
Music on the Brain - Rhythm & Tempo: Move to the Groove
People lock onto some rhythms better than others. Certain tunes captivate us and make us move; others less so. Join us as we explore how the motor cortex in the brain responds to different rhythms and tempos in music.
Come get your groove on with multi-instrumentalist jazz musician, composer, and educator T.K. Blue and Zuckerman Institute Professor of Neuroscience Mark Churchland for a jazz performance and dialogue, exploring the impact of rhythm and tempo on how we move.
Music on the Brain is a collaboration between the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute.
