Pawan Sinha on Music, Vision, and Brain Plasticity

MIT Professor Pawan Sinha’s groundbreaking work on how the brain extracts meaning from sights and sounds has enabled him and his team both to restore sight to children born blind and “listen in” on how the brain hears music. Sinha will talk about this work and demonstrate his “Brain Jukebox,” a tool that reconstructs sound sequences from the mental patterns of listeners and plays it back to the audience. Sinha presents his work at FAST Thinking — part of a three-month-long festival celebrating MIT’s 150th birthday and its revolutionary work at the intersection of art, science, and technology.
