S3171: Music and Stress: A Neuroscience Perspective in Splash Spring 18 (Apr. 07, 2018)
After listening to music, we naturally feel our moods soar, but what is it about music that makes it so moving to us, and how can it affect our health? Can we harness its powers to address the issue of adolescent stress? Adolescents today are experiencing increased levels of stress, which makes the body more prone to disease. In this presentation, the relationship between music and the brain will be explored, and it will become clear why listening to music can be a method of stress reduction for adolescents. *note: if you have a pair of earphones, please bring them!
