Music, media and the brain

University Of Bristol : 12 April, 2007  (Technical Article)
Does listening to music benefit the mind? How much do advertising and the media influence our decisions and behaviour? Dr John Barrett, an experimental psychologist at the University of Bristol, will attempt to answer these fascinating questions at two free lunchtime public talks, taking place this February.
Does listening to music benefit the mind? How much do advertising and the media influence our decisions and behaviour? Dr John Barrett, an experimental psychologist at the University of Bristol, will attempt to answer these fascinating questions at two free lunchtime public talks, taking place this February.

At the first talk, Tingle and effort: the psychology of music, Dr Barrett will discuss the numerous psychological and educational benefits of music, including how it can enhance our learning abilities and musical skills for the future. He will also explain how regular practice at learning to play a musical instrument creates the brain structures necessary for the skill.

At his next talk Are we being brainwashed? Dr Barrett will examine how the lifespan of our brains and health are influenced by TV, press and advertising. Our behaviour, intelligence, the way we think and how long we live are all influenced by the media and celebrities.

“Advertising is changing our brain structure, abilities and behaviours, often with negative consequences,” says Dr John Barrett. His talks will look at ways in which we can resist its influence.
