The Shepherd School of Music
Exploring the Mind Through Music


Thirty fellows—fifteen musicians and fifteen scientists—will be selected to participate in the Conference. Fellows will be chosen on the basis of their demonstrated interest and accomplishment in the field. In 2011, the Conference welcomed fellows from the Chinese Republic, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Israel, Sweden and leading institutions throughout the United States. In addition to attending closed seminars and public talks, the fellows will have the opportunity to give 10-minute, "TED"-style presentations on their research to their peers and the public.

All Conference costs are covered, including registration fees, housing and meals; fellows are only responsible for their travel to campus.
