YOU ARE THE MUSICVICTORIA WILLIAMSON Book Number: 84916 Product format: Paperback
A wonderfully uncomplicated look at music's power and its impact on human behaviour. Do babies remember music from the womb? Can music help with exercise or recovery from illness? What is going on in your brain when that certain song transports you back to your teenage years? This brilliant new book will delight lovers of all kinds of music and is written by the psychology academic and researcher Victoria Williamson who explores our intensely personal relationship with music. She reveals the amazing ways in which it can physically reshape our brains, how 'smart music listening' can actually improve cognitive performance, and the possible causes of 'earworms'. All you need with you on this journey is your curiosity about music because, as T. S. Eliot said, 'You are the music/While the music lasts.' 262pp in paperback.
