What happens in the brains of audience while watching dance? – Finnish neuroscience research continues in Canada
Finnish neuroscientist and dancer Hanna Poikonen’s dissertation “Dance on Cortex – ERPs and Phase Synchrony in Dancers and Musicians during a Contemporary Dance Piece” was published last spring. In March 2019, her research focuses on the effects of watching dance on the brain. Poikonen’s work is internationally pioneering – watching dance has not been studied much from the point of view of neuroscience.
“Dance combines so many things – moving, watching, expressing yourself, interaction. I’m interested in finding out how dance affects the brain and how the results differ between professional dancers, musicians and regular audience,” Hanna Poikonen says.
