Conference on Music in Lisbon

Dear Colleagues,

In honor of Wagner's centennial, and in collaboration with the faculty of medicine of the Universidade Nova of Lisbon and the Goethe Institute, Dr Armando Sena and I have organized a conference on music and neuroscience in Lisbon on 25 May 2013. For more information please visit the web site:
