BNA and Sainsbury Wellcome Centre at UCL Christmas Symposium 2013
The Musical Brain
The BNA have teamed up with the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre at University College London to present this year's seasonal symposium which features a top line-up of speakers who will explore our musical brains.

Whether you attend a solemn religious ceremony or an alcohol-fuelled karaoke, Christmas is a time for music. From sublime carols to seasonal pop songs, Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to unleash our inner Diva. Even if Christmas is irrelevant to you, the pleasure of music is universal, an essential part of every human culture. Join the BNA at its annual Christmas Symposium to explore the neuroscience of music, from the mechanics of sound perception all the way through to the therapeutic uses of music, in an appreciation of The Musical Brain.
