What happens in the brain when we sing? Singing and speaking are our two main forms of communicating with sound yet we still know very little about how they are related in the brain. This presentation reviews what we do know about the brain when we sing, speak, or sing with words. The findings are important for understanding how the brain changes with singing training, and how we can use singing to retrain the brain to speak after injury.

This seminar was presented by Associate Professor Sarah Wilson, Director of MMW, and Reader in neuropsychology, auditory neuroscience and music psychology at the University of Melbourne's School of Psychological Sciences.
