SCIENCE ON TAP: Music & the Aging Brain
Science on Tap is Portland's favorite lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy an adult beverage, and laugh while you listen. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don't have to be a science geek to have fun - all you need is a thirst for knowledge.
About Sherwood's event: Our brains undergo numerous changes that affect memory, motor, and sensory functions as we age. Many of these changes are amplified in diseases like Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. Could music limit the effects of aging and neurodegenerative diseases?
At this event, learn from Dr. Larry Sherman, a musician and Professor of Neuroscience at the Oregon Health & Science University, and singer/songwriter Naomi LaViolette as they explore how listening, practicing, and performing music influence the brain, and how these activities could impact brain aging and disease. They will also discuss Naomi's work as a pianist, vocalist, arranger, and composer with Steven Goodwin, who suffers from Alzheimers, and the Saving His Music project, which has received prominent coverage in national and local news.
Join us and enjoy a multi-media presentation that combines live music and visuals with discussions about cutting edge science. The presenters will be performing live music ranging from Debussy, Leonard Cohen, and the Beatles to original pieces by Ms. LaViolette and Steven Goodwin.
