Patricia Caicedo is the John R. Stratton Visitor in Music at the Faculty of Music.

Combining her training as a physician, musician, and musicologist, Patricia wrote We are what we listen to, the impact of music on individual and social health, a book to discover the relationship between music and health and the impact of music on mental and physical health.

The book explores the cognitive mechanisms of perception of music, the relationship between rhythm, movement, and health, the brain mechanisms that link music, pleasure, and emotion, and the many ways in which music improves our quality of life, leads to wellness, happiness and provides us a sense of purpose and meaning in life.

Join Patricia Caicedo and the Faculty of Music for this free lecture at Walter Hall.
