Join Steinway Artist and Guggenheim Fellow, jazz pianist Helen Sung for a live music performance and exploration of how we move to the rhythm, with Neurorehabilitation researcher and dancer Miriam King and Assistant Professor of Neuroscience Mark Churchland. They will explore how our brains and bodies respond to rhythm - from the internal rhythms like our breath and pulse to rhythm from the music we hear.


Dr. Mark Churchland is Assistant Professor of Neuroscience, Principal Investigator at Columbia's Zuckerman Institute, and co-director of the Grossman Center for the Statistics of Mind, and a member of the Kavli Institute for Brain Science at Columbia University. Professor Churchland’s research focuses on how the brain controls voluntary movement, and focuses on questions such as: how does the brain prepare and generate voluntary movement? How do we turn thought into action?


Join us to listen and move with the music, and maybe learn something new!
