Your Baby’s Brain on Music

Music is sound. Sound is heard. But music is so much more.   Music ignites the brain, orchestrating a neural symphony between the ears. A melody drifts into the ear, spirals down the cochlea, drops individual tones onto waiting receptors. Tones are deconstructed and launched out on a variety of trajectories, simultaneously activating multiple regions [...]

Surveying Sound: Your Baby’s First Critical Window

Sounds abound in our rich auditory world. As humans we take them in, wrap them in culture, create language. Neuroscientists have long been interested in understanding this uniquely human process of language acquisition. When does language learning begin and when does a person become bound to their unique language? Researchers have discovered that this highly [...]

The Relationship Between Language, Music, and the Brain

The complete relationship between music and language at the neurological level is still a subject of research and, to some degree, a mystery. However, it’s no mystery that music and language certainly do share some brain space when it comes to how we process sounds. There is strong evidence to suggest that when you listen [...]

Right Brain vs. Left Brain

Some people will vehemently defend that they are “leftbrained” or “right-brained”, but we all use both sides of our brain. More importantly, we all have cells in our brain that communicate from one side to the other so that both may be of use. These cells live in a part of the brain called the [...]

This is an excerpt from the abstract: By contrasting brain responses to harmonic transgressions against regular endings, functional brain imaging data showed compelling evidence for stepwise modulation of brain responses by both violation strength and expertise [...]
