Rhythm in Language and Music: A Lecture by Aniruddh Patel
September 20, 2010
Rhythm is fundamental to speech and music. What do these two domains share in terms of rhythmic organization? Senior fellow at The Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, Dr. Aniruddh Patel is a leading researcher on issues involving music, language, and the brain. In his presentation, Dr. Patel will explore the notion that speech and music have fundamental differences in their regular rhythms, but important connections in their irregular ones. This event is presented by Wellesley College's Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences program.
