Pub Yarns on Medical Research – Alan Harvey and music
“Music, Mental Health and Social Harmony” will be the subject of a fascinating public talk as part of the “Pub Yarns on Medical Research” series at sunset at the Cottesloe Hotel.
The free public talk will be presented by The University of Western Australia neuroscientist, Emeritus Professor Alan Harvey and will take place on 18 June from 6pm to 7pm at the Cottesloe Hotel.
Professor Harvey is the Chair of the Perron Institute Research Advisory Committee and is also a gifted musician. His intersecting interests place him in an exceptional position to understand the connections between music, human evolution and brain function.
He is a persuasive advocate for the power of music to help treat neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
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.
