The Musical Brain

This interesting website provides information regarding the brain’s relationship to music. The brain interprets the music we listen to, allowing us to decipher which and what kind of music we like and dislike. Damage to our brain, particularly the temporal lobe can greatly affect our ability to listen, perform and even translate what we hear within the music we listen to. Discover information about the Mozart Effect, or the school of thought that listening to certain types of music is a good way to improve memory and increase intelligence. The site includes links to various “brain songs” as well as to other experiments and activities.
