yes okay well not exactly overwhelmingly relevant to primary science, but i'm going to park it here until i get around to making another scoopit account to house ephemera! Science fiction changed music. And music saved science fiction. Most of our favorite flights of fancy and epic adventures are bound up in our minds with amazing musical scores, or epic theme songs.

Dallas Wiens' face transplant progress revealed in new images - HealthPop - CBS News

Dallas Wiens' face transplant progress revealed in new images - HealthPop - CBS News | primary science from an aesthetic bent | Scoop.it

Wiens: the first American to undergo full face transplant. Great images to spark discussion about physical differences, what is 'normal', priorities in life (ie a life where he can feel his daughter's kisses is better than a life hiding and withdrawn, is better than giving up altogether). Also teamwork (of the medical team) and scientific invention that brought this to be a possibility.

Neural pathways for language in autism: the potential for music-based treatments

I love anything that links arts with learning, especially when the learners have ASD: Wan & Schlaug propose that music-based interventions (e.g., auditory–motor mapping training) would take advantage of the musical strengths of these children, and are likely to engage, and possibly strengthen, the connections between frontal and temporal regions bilaterally. Such treatments have important clinical potential in facilitating expressive language in nonverbal children with autism.
