Welcome to the webpage for the Brain and Music group.
Professor Stefan Koelsch - Department of Biological and Medical Psychology.
Most people listen to music. Sometimes we like to listen to music while we work, other times to calm ourselves before going to sleep or while reading a book. Music is omnipresent in our lives as it is constantly played in our surondings, for example in resutrants and shops. The Brain and Music group is a brain group, but we are also very interested in how brain and music work. The neuroscience of music is an ever expanding field and it is perhaps important to know how to use music to prevent illness and ease symptoms.
The Brain and Music group is a node group under Bergen fMRI Group. We are located at the Institute of Biological and Medical Psychology.
We work on several projects and you can find more information about the projects on this area.
