Fireworks in the Brain: How Music Affects Mood, Mind and Memory
Have you ever wondered if music can:
• Make you smarter, more intuitive, even more successful?
• Help your children or grandchildren excel in school?
• Ease pain, depression, or anxiety?
• Slow cognitive decline?
ChaiVillageLA and Temple Isaiah present a truly informative evening with USC's Dr. Assal Habibi who will discuss how and why music provides a symphony of benefits for all age groups. Topics may cover how music helps us to express emotions that are hard to verbalize, enables us to retrieve and retain memories more effectively, and enhances cognitive functioning and neural processing.
In collaboration with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and their Youth Orchestra Program, Dr. Habibi led a 5-year longitudinal study at USC on how music training during childhood affects brain, cognitive and social development. Dr. Habibi is currently involved in documenting how choir singing and music listening can impact hearing in older adults.
Light refreshments will be served.
Parking will be available in the Rancho Park Golf Course lot on the south side of Pico Boulevard. If you would like to request a ride, call the office at least 4 business days before and we'll do our best to find you a ride.
We welcome members of Temple Isaiah and Temple Emanuel.

She completed her doctoral work at UC Irvine, investigating the effects of musical training in musicians, non-musicians and patients with auditory impairments. She is a classically trained pianist.
