Oxford May Music: Brain plasticity

Oxford May Music: Brain plasticity


Prof. Andrew King, University of Oxford
Our brains interpret sound to enable us to recognise someone’s voice or a piece of music, to determine its direction or origin, and to separate sounds from each other. The brain can change the way in which sensory signals are processed, highlighting some, despite considerable variations in what reaches the ears. This “plasticity” provides the basis for learning language and musical training, and also offers the potential for recovery following hearing loss.

Duration: 1 hour with no interval
