About Music and Epilepsy

Neurology Professor at Masaryk University in Brno (Slovakia) Ivan Rektor about the impact of music on epilepsy and our brain

The first series of the B-AIR Soundings broadcasts is made in collaboration with our feature host, head physician Igor M. Ravnik, M.D. pediatrician. It presents dialogue with experts on various topics related to sound: from research on the early influence of music on cognitive, emotional, and personality development to the neurophysiology and neuropsychology of music, music therapy, pediatrics and creativity. The first speaker in a week characterized by the Epilepsy Day is Ivan Rektor, Professor of Neurology at the Masaryk University in Brno, who has catalyzed research on the impact of music on epilepsy and the brain, and studies of neurobiological markers under conditions of extreme stress (in three generations of Holocaust survivors).
