What does music do for us? Dr. Dan Levitin and Ned talk about how our brains interpret music, why we find it so captivating, and what all those piano lessons really did for us when we were younger.
Dr. Levitin is a neuroscientist and top researcher into how our brains interpret music. He is the author of several #1 best-selling books including, This is Your Brain on Music, and his latest, The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload.
