Music is often rated to be among the top ten pleasures in life, but research shows that listening to music can be more than a pleasant pastime. Music affects our brains, bodies, and behaviour and we can consciously use these effects to promote health and well-being. In this presentation Associate Professor Kira Vibe Jespersen will give an introduction to music neuroscience and outline the research on how music can be used to improve various aspects of mental health.

You will meet:

Kristian Humaidan, Founder of Soundwheel

Kristian Humaidan is best known to the general public as one part of the rap duo UFO Yepha, but in recent years he has worked as a meditation teacher, entrepreneur and CEO developing music meditations through the company Soundwheel.

Kristian Humaidan has developed a series of music meditations, which are particularly aimed at groups of people who drive at a high mental pace and therefore find it difficult to get fully into gear through more ordinary meditations.

Kira Vibe Jespersen, PhD, is a MSc in psychology with an additional BA in Music Therapy. She holds a PhD in health sciences from Aarhus University, where she is now Assistant Professor at the Danish National Research Foundation’s Center of Excellence for Music in the Brain. Her research focus on clinical applications of music with a particular interest in the effect of music on sleep and the potential use of music for insomnia. As part of her research she evaluates both the effect of music interventions and aims to unravel some of the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying these effect.
