At Bread & Roses every day, we are privileged to witness the healing power of music, and today scientists and neurologists are confirming what we’ve known for over 37 years: that “humans are hardwired to respond to music.”
Listen to this June 1st interview on NPR’s Talk of the Nation with Neal Conan, where he interviews Elena Mannes, author of The Power of Music: Pioneering Discoveries in the New Science of Song. Esteemed neurologist and president of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition, Ani Patel joins in on the conversation. There is also a link to the transcript, as well as an excerpt from the book - http://www.npr.org/2011/06/01/136859090/the-power-of-music-to-affect-the-brain.
