What’s Music Good For? A Cognitive Scientist’s Perspective


On November 12, 2022, Dr. Robert Slevc, associate professor and associate chair in the University of Maryland Department of Psychology, as well as part of the university’s Program in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) and the Maryland Language Science Center, discusses how music can help our brains. His research focuses on the cognitive mechanisms involved in the processing of language and of music in both normal and brain-damaged populations.

The event was part of the Route 1 Corridor Conversations series organized by Hyattsville Aging in Place, Helping Hands University Park, Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park, and Explorations on Aging College Park with sponsorship from the City of College Park.
