The Neuroscience of Pleasure

How your brain responds to music, love and chocolate

Larry Sherman, Ph.D.
Professor, Oregon National Primate Research Center
OHSU

Listening to beautiful music, falling in love and eating really good chocolate create intense feelings of pleasure – but why? OHSU neuroscientist Larry Sherman, Ph.D., joined by the Portland Chamber Orchestra and singer Naomi LaViolette, presents a fascinating multi-media discussion and concert on how the brain experiences pleasure. Diving into exciting new research – including what happens to the brain when love goes awry – and what we can learn from the monogamous prairie vole, Dr. Sherman mixes music, humor and neuroscience for an unforgettable, educational evening.

This unique lecture and performance will have a 15 minute intermission, and end at 9 p.m.
