The lunchtime learning presentation, “Jazz Improvisation, Musical Creativity, and the Brain,” featuring Charles Limb, MD, will be held on Friday, February 2

is co-sponsored by St. John’s Medical Center Words on Wellness and
the Grand Teton Music Festival as part of its 2018 Winter Festival.
In this presentation, Dr. Limb will discuss how neuroscientists study the
musical regions of the brain, his experimental findings related to jazz
improvisation, and the societal value of “Science of the Arts.”
Dr. Charles Limb is the Francis A. Sooy Professor of Otolaryngology-Head
and Neck Surgery and the Chief of the Division of Otology, Neurotology
and Skull Base Surgery at UC San Francisco. He was featured on an

of musical creativity as well as the study of music perception in deaf
individuals with cochlear implants.
