Readers,

For those of you who are as fascinated by music and the brain as I am, don’t miss this panel discussion from the World Science Festival. This is a fascinating panel discussion of neuroscientists and musicians talking about how the brain processes music, cultural differences, and experiments comparing Western and non-Western music. The discussion is educational and entertaining. It includes video clips of psychological experiments in India and performances by Bobby McFerrin.
