“Music and Brain” with Prof. Hannah Monyer and the brothers Erik and Mark Schumann (violin / cello)
The DZNE cordially invites to the fifth installment of the “Music and Brain” series on Monday, March 5th, 2012 at 6:00 pm at Forschungszentrum caesar, Ludwig-Erhard-Allee 2, in Bonn. Participation is free.
The event will begin with a talk by Prof. Hannah Monyer, Heidelberg University
Hospital, on the topic “Lernen und Gedächtnis bei Mäusen und Menschen” (Learning and memory in mice and men). Subsequently, the brothers Erik (violin) and Mark Schumann (cello) will play works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Gideon Klein. The evening will close with a small reception.
Prof. Hannah Monyer has been Medical Director of the Department for Clinical
Neurobiology at the University of Heidelberg since 1999. She studied medicine in Heidelberg, completing her doctorate in 1982. Following a period of research at Stanford University, Palo Alto, USA, she returned to Heidelberg in 1989 to take up a post at the ZMBH (Zentrum für Molekulare Biologie Heidelberg). Prof. Monyer's investigations focus on the molecular mechanisms underlying the onset and modulation of neuronal network activity. Her research targets the identification of key molecules which play a significant role in physical and neurological disorders.
Erik (*1982) and Mark Schumann (*1988) were born near Cologne to musically
talented German / Romanian-Japanese parents. They studied under internationally renowned music teachers for violin and cello, Zachar Bron and Heinrich Schiff, to name a few. Numerous accomplishments in music competitions in Germany and abroad, radio recordings, chamber music festivals, tours with renowned orchestras and conductors are a statement of their exceptional talent.
