Cross-Disciplinary MBB Music and Science Faculty Interest Group

What is the role of music in society? How does music relate to the development of language?  Can music be used therapeutically? The MBB faculty interest group on Music, Science and Medicine consists of approximately 25 participants from several graduate schools and the College. We will meet bimonthly to explore topics such as music’s relationship to time, rhythm, narrative, improvisation and social interaction to try to identify mutual research interests from a cross-disciplinary perspective.
