Music surrounds us. It is part of who we are as humans.  Why do all cultures have music? Why is a certain scale, the  pentatonic scale, found in all cultures?  Can music actually be beneficial to us? Can music heal?  Dr. Vincent de Louise, an assistant professor of ophthalmology at Yale University School of Medicine, and on the adjunct faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College, presents "Music and the Brain: Linking Melody and the Mind" at the Woodbury Public Library on Thursday, July 12 at 7:00 PM and explains the many different effects music has on the mind.  The program is open to all but registration is required.  Please contact the library at 203-263-3502 or register at www.woodburylibraryct.org.
