Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed pianist and graduate student in medical physics Eric Barnhill about "Cognition, Movement, and Music" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio. 

How does cognition connect to physical movement, tone, and rhythm? Can moving to music help the development of cognitive skills and capacities, particularly in children? 

Eric Barnhill is a Juilliard-trained concert pianist and the creator of Cognitive Eurhythmics music movement therapy. He is pursuing a Ph.D in medical physics at the University of Edinburgh, where he studies brain-muscle interaction using magnetic resonance physics.
