The Royal Irish Academy of Music will host the launch of a new interdisciplinary research network, TIMBRE: The Irish Music Brain Research Group, on Friday 18 October, 7-8pm. 

The Irish Music Brain Research Group is an inclusive interdisciplinary research network with expertise in neuroscience, psychology, music therapy, music performance and education. The aim of the group is to build an inclusive network that brings Irish researchers and practitioners together to explore the relationships between music and the brain from both highly theoretical and applied perspectives, combining musicianship with advanced research methodologies.

This free event will feature musical performances and a presentation by Dr Catherine Jordan, Atlantic Fellow at the Global Brain Health Institute. Dr Jordan will speak about TIMBRE and the importance of interdisciplinary research, drawing on her own research on music and dementia. There will be networking opportunities, information about upcoming TIMBRE events, and refreshments will be provided.
