Neurosciences and Music – IV

Posted by: on Mar 1, 2011 | No Comments

The Mariani Foundation for Paediatric Neurology announces The Neurosciences and Music – IV: Learning and Memory, to be held in Edinburgh (Scotland, UK) from 9th to 12th June 2011. 

The conference is conceived as a continuation of the previous meetings on the relation between the Neurosciences and Music in which our Foundation participated: “The Biological Foundations of Music” (New York, 2000), “The Neurosciences and Music – I , Mutual interactions and implications of developmental functions” (Venice, 2002), “The Neurosciences and Music – II, From perception to performance” (Leipzig, 2005) and “The Neurosciences and Music – III, Disorders and plasticity“. These conferences have been highly successful and have generated enormous excitement, both among established and new researchers. By providing the opportunity to present new results and exchange information, the meetings have contributed substantially to the growth of new research and collaborations in the neuroscience of music and to its visibility within the broader scientific community.

The central theme of “The Neurosciences and Music – IV” is Learning and Memory, divided into 4 subthemes: “Infants and Children”, “Adults: musicians and non musicians”, “Disabilities and aging-related issues” and “Therapy and “Rehabilitation”. The conference will include 9 Symposia, 3 Poster Sessions, 2 Workshops and a Keynote Lecture. The conference will be of interest to neuroscientists, psychologists, clinical neurologists, clinical psychologists, therapists, as well as music performers, educators and musicologists.

The Scientific Community is invited to present posters through the online form available on the Mariani Foundation’s website. Deadline to submit your proposal has been extended to March 28th, 2011
