Jazz is very different from rock music- but does the brain of a jazz musician act differently than that of a rock musician? What about the brain of a painter, or a dancer? In this podcast join musician and surgeon Charles Limb, of the Peabody Conservatory of Music and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, as he discusses musical creativity in the brain in this final SciCafe of the spring 2013 season. Dr. Limb both talks about his own research using functional MRI to measure brain activity in musicians as they play music, and also shows how his results have implications for our understanding of creativity of all kinds.

The SciCafe "The Neuroscience of Creativity" took place at the Museum on June 5, 2013.
