MIB - Music in the Brain

About Music in the Brain

Music is experienced, performed and shared by people in all societies, ages and social groups. Recently, neuroscientific interest in music has increased dramatically as modern brain imaging techniques have provided researchers the means to investigate the living human brain at work.

Music in the Brain has been founded by a number of research institutions in the city of Aarhus working within this field. It aims to facilitate contacts between different scientific approaches to studying music and the brain, and to introduce this scientific field to a broader audience within the Danish music community.
