There are a lot of differences between jazz and classical music. But as a Northeastern University professor has discovered, these differences even trickle down to the musicians’ brains.

In this episode, we talk to Psyche Loui (assistant professor of music and director of the Music, Imaging, and Neural Dynamics Lab), Evan Bennett (music director of the Northeastern University Symphony Orchestra), and members of Northeastern’s jazz and classical ensembles.
