NeuroTango: Brainwaves in Sync?
Mar 26, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| Free
What happens in the brain of tango dancers as they glide and swirl? Tango is synchronization, two bodies connected through the embrace, moving as one. But are dancers’ brainwaves synchronized too?
On March 26th, neuroscientist Suzanne Dikker will allow us to peer into tango dancers’ minds in a live experiment showing their brain activity in real time. Three couples will be fitted with wireless headsets that will sense their brain waves and transmit them to a computer as they dance. Brain wave synchronization—or lack thereof—in each couple will be translated into dynamic visualizations projected on the walls.
In a moderated conversation with the public, Suzanne will discuss what it means to be “on the same wavelength.” Headsets will be available for a few people to try on while they dance.
