Jazz in the Brain: performance and presentation of the connections between Neuroscience and jazz, WNYC The Green Space

Jazz In The Brain: A dialogue of sounds and science

How does a neuroscientist answer the question: What is a thought? How does a jazz musician create a new phrase that grooves with the band and excites the listener? 

Michael ShadlenProfessor of Neuroscience and member of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University, and Chris Washburne, Professor of Music and Founding Director of the Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program at Columbia University, will discuss emerging concepts in neuroscience which begin to expose the biology of deliberation, decision-making and timing. They will demonstrate recordings from brain cells and live jazz in an interactive dialogue about jazz and neuroscience.
