Peter Vuust
Leader of the Danish National Research Foundation’s Center of Excellence for Music in the Brain, brain scientist, jazz bassist and composer. In addition, he is a professor at both The Royal Academy of Music and Aarhus University. Hence, Peter Vuust is a unique combination of a world-class jazz musician and scientist. Because of his practical and theoretical knowledge of both music and the brain he often appears in the media as an expert in the field. He is also a much-requested speaker at various venues, conveying the results of his own and other people’s research in a both serious and entertaining way, and specializes in the neuroscience of musical rhythm.

Eckart Altenmüller
Holds a Master’s degree in Classical flute and a MD and PhD degree in Neurology and is Chair and Director of the Institute of Music Physiology and Musicians’ Medicine at the University of Music Drama and Media in Hannover. In this position, he has performed research into brain activation during auditory processing of music and learning of fine motor skills, an area in which he has published extensively. He continues research into the neurobiology of emotions and into movement disorders in musicians as well as motor, auditory and sensory learning. He has published more than 120 peer reviewed papers on this topic and received 18 grants from the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Glenn Schellenberg
Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, cross-appointed to the Faculty of Music. In addition, he runs the Music & Cognition Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus. Schellenberg’s most recognized work has focused on the association between music abilities and general cognitive abilities, among which are several studies testing the so-called Mozart effect. Recently, Schellenberg has evaluated linkages between intelligence measures and music training. Although he found that music training could improve intelligence slightly, he has also documented that high-functioning individuals are more likely than other individuals to take music lessons.

Mari Tervaniemi
Research Director at the Cognitive Brain Research Unit and Cicero Learning at the University of Helsinki. Mari Tervaniemi is a well-known expert in neurosciences of music. She has published over 160 empirical papers and reviews in peer-reviewed international journals and several invited book chapters. Her work has revealed the impact of music learning on brain functions in toddlers and school-aged children. Tervaniemi has also shown how music-related activities, even in terms of singing and listening to familiar songs, can effectively boost the emotional and cognitive well-being of the patients as well as their caregivers.
