How does your brain sound? UCL neuroscientists Dr Carolyn McGettigan and Professor Vincent Walsh are joined by their collaborators UK beat box champion Reeps One and Notation and Interpretation curator Joana Seguro to discuss speech, singing, music and the brain.

Dr McGettigan and Reeps One have been working together to see what happens in his brain when he performs. What does his brain look like he’s doing? Speaking or singing or neither? Joana and Vincent worked together on the Brainwaves project, an exploration of the brain and sound with artists responding to brain scanners, brain imaging and recent neuroscience research.
