Why Our Brains Need Music
Dr. Larry Sherman, Ph. D., a neuroscientist and musician, joined us today to talk about why our brains need music.
Here are a few highlights from the discussion:
Can listening to music benefit brain development? And does it matter what kind of music we listen to?
Is there something going on in the teen brain that makes them become obsessed with music?
Will listening to music while doing homework -- or other tasks requiring concentration and reading or writing -- distract from the task at hand?
