Healing Power of Music – Free Public Lecture

The therapeutic effect of music and the brain will be the subject of a fascinating public lecture at the inaugural Perron Institute symposium on latest research into neurological diseases and treatments.

The free public presentation is by Emeritus Professor Alan Harvey, who is the Chair of the Perron Institute Research Advisory Committee, a neuroscientist at The University of Western Australia, and a gifted musician.

His intersecting interests place him in an exceptional position to understand the connections between music, human evolution and brain function.

Professor Harvey’s book Music, Evolution, and the Harmony of Souls, published in 2017 by Oxford University Press, is a unique literature resource for academics, clinicians, therapists, educators and teachers.

He is a persuasive advocate for the power of music to help treat neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

When: 1 May from 5pm to 6pm

Where: The University Club of Western Australia, Hackett Drive, Crawley
