Hospice Savannah Announces Sixth Annual Lecture Series
Date:12/19/2013

Savannah, GA (PRWEB) December 19, 2013

Hospice Savannah is proud to announce that their Sixth Annual Lecture Series, featuring Dr. Petr Janata, an associate professor at the U.C.-Davis Center for Neuroscience, will be held Jan. 23 and 24.

Dr. Janata is a cognitive neuroscientist studying the psychology of music. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon in 1996. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago, he joined the research faculty at Dartmouth College. There, he resumed his music perception research as an undergraduate at Reed College and continued as a Fulbright Scholar in Vienna, Austria. Since 2004, Dr. Janata has been a faculty member of the Center for Mind and Brain and the Department of Psychology at U.C.-Davis. His fascinating research about the connection between music and memory will be the topic of his lecture.

Lecture Series attendees will also meet Hospice Savannah’s neurologic music therapist Amy Adams, MM, MT-BC, who believes anyone can learn how to use music to bring about joy, movement and emotional responses from their loved ones or patients. Hospice Savannah is the only organization in the Coastal Empire to employ a full-time certified music therapist. The Foundation has generously supported the funding for this position through community support for more than 10 years.

Dr. Janata's schedule is as follows:

5 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23. Dinner and lecture “Music-evoked Spiritual Experiences and the Brain” at Candler’s Marsh Auditorium. By invitation only.

8 to 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24. Grand Rounds at Memorial Health UMC “Music, Memories and the Brain.” Open to interested medical professionals. CME’s/CEU’s available.
