Alex Cowans's curator insight, March 6, 7:03 PM

I think it makes sense that music stimulates our brains. There have been many times when I have listened to new  music and it gets so good that I have to stop what I'm doing just to relish the moment. This phenomena of music being better than expected is the reason as to why when I buy new music, all I do is listen because I don't want any other distractions. I also agree with the author that a discussion between neuroscientists and musicians can reveal a lot of new information.
