"Music And The Mind: The Lifelong Benefits Of Music For The Brain" With Dr. Ewan McNay

Mar 19, 2019

Learning and playing music, more than almost any other activity, strengthens and preserves brain function. Moreover, the brain of a musician is markedly different from that of a non-musician.

In a free multimedia presentation on Wednesday night, March 20 at 7 p.m. at the Guilderland Public Library, UAlbany Neuroscientist, Dr. Ewan McNay, who conducts research in his brain-scanning lab, discusses just how and why this happens and explains how continuing to make music helps keep your brain young. The program is entitled: "Music And The Mind: The Lifelong Benefits Of Music For The Brain."

This event is co-sponsored by Bach Cello Suites Workshop and the Guilderland Public Library.
