On June 12th, I co-organised a scientific program at the Poetry International Festival: By Heart: Poetry and the Brain (together with Marjolijn Abel and Liesbeth Huijer). Adam Zeman gives a lecture on the effects of poetry on the brain. The poets Els Moors and Marion Poschmann will participate in and respond to Zeman’s research. Musician and composer Jan Klug will use the theremin, an instrument that responds to movement, to improvise on the scans that are shown.
