The event opens a lecture series on the topic of "Music and the Brain" with internationally outstanding scientists who have made an outstanding contribution to researching the wonders of musical life in the brain. In this popular-scientific and entertaining format, they will talk about their research results and answer content-related questions, – in addition, the research personalities themselves will be introduced and made humanly approachable: What interests brought them to music, what brought them to brain research, what are their passions, what impulses feed their curiosity, how do they themselves experience music?
