Neurosciences and music meet in Montreal

In the wake of the success of previous meetings in Venice in 2002 and Leipzig in 2005, the Fondazione Pierfranco e Luisa Mariani ONLUS announces the third edition of the Neurosciences and Music international conference which will be held in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) from June 26th to 28th, 2008.

The upcoming meeting will be held in partnership with the BRAMS (International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research). BRAMS is jointly affiliated with McGill University, Universit de Montral and the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital. We also have the cooperation of the New York Academy of Sciences, USA.

The Montreal meeting will be a renewed opportunity for scientists, musicians, major researchers and promising young students to exchange information, share experiences and to discuss and disseminate the emerging scientific discoveries. The conference program is overseen by the International Organization Committee: Isabelle Peretz, Universit de Montral, BRAMS, Robert Zatorre, McGill University, BRAMS, Virginia Penhune, Concordia University, BRAMS, Giuliano Avanzini, Istituto Nazionale Neurologico C. Besta, Milan, and the Scientific Secretary Luisa Lopez, University of Rome, Tor Vergata.

The main theme of the conference is research on interactions between music and the human brain in healthy and pathologic conditions. The conference will focus on many topics such as: the importance of music in the biologic and cultural evolution of man, differences between musicians trained at an early or late age, congenital amusia, absolute pitch, the relationship between the study of music and intellectual abilities in children, musical abilities in behavioural disorders and genetic syndromes, music perception in cochlear implant patients, dystonias in musicians, the effectiveness of music as a means to reduce the perception of pain, and music rehabilitation.
