King Abdullah University of Science and Technology Professor Pierre Magistretti discusses an experiment that studied the brainwaves of two pianists as they performed together, looking for clues to synchrony and creativity in the brain.

Video of the experiment shows a projected visualization of the gamma waves of the pianists’ brains, recorded from EEG caps, as well as a visualization of the improvised music.

Cool images and patterns helped the scientists look for clues to creativity, as well as synchrony of the musicians’ brain waves as they played together.
