Musicophilia - our next ABC with Otago Lecturers!




Please join us for a stimulating and entertaining evening discussing 'Musicophilia'


This special talk is the opening Brain Week event and will feature University of Otago neuroscientist Professor David Bilkey discussing Oliver Sacks’ 2007 book Musicophilia.


In the book Sacks, the author of best-seller The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, discusses humanity’s relationship with music and its ability to move, haunt and heal us. 


Professor Bilkey will expand on Sacks’ discussion of how and why the brain responds to music.


You don’t need to have read the book!  Just come and learn about a fascinating topic from an expert in the field.  


Tues 6 March
Doors open from 6:30pm for decadent desserts, refreshments, mingling and book browsing.
Talk begins 7pm sharp.
