Music and the Mind

Professional musicians have more gray matter than the rest of us, including in cognitive areas.

Listen to Dr. A. Patel from the Institute of Neurosciences talking about "Music and the Mind." What music can teach us about the brain, and the brain, about music.

All cultures that have ever existed have had music. In the absence of instruments, they sing. We are the only species that does. (Birds are doing something different, basically structured, rigid, and hormonally dictated. )

Music lights up the pleasure center of the brain generally reserved only for survival functions like eating and mating.

Nietzche said, "We listen to music with our muscles," and it appears to be true.

Music engages many brain functions, more than any other domain. It increase IQ points.
