Overview

Many different disciplines are analyzing the impact of music today. How and why this ancient cultural asset forms, empowers and makes use of us can only become apparent in the synopsis and exchange with scientific research. Based on this perspective, the congress "Mozart and Science" extended an invitation for the first interdisciplinary and international dialogue of sciences about the impact of music. This book is based on the results of the congress. It contains the latest research findings of various disciplines, and particularly covers psycho-physiological and cognitive matters. Additional essays give a deep insight into psycho-physiological issues and findings. With the dialogue of sciences, the congress combines musical reception with the perspective of neurological agitation potentials.
