Tufts University neuroscientist, Aniruddh D. Patel, explains how music is one of the most powerful ways to activate most of the brain...from our emotions to memory, motor control and more. This is an excerpt from "The Art of the Score: The Mind, Music, and Moving Images", a co-presentation of World Science Festival and the New York Philharmonic, moderated by Alec Baldwin.
Aniruddh D. Patel is associate professor in the Department of Psychology at Tufts University. His research focuses on how the brain processes music and language, especially what the similarities and differences between the two reveal about each other and about the brain itself.
