Music on the Brain

I just happened upon these two fascinating resources on the connections between music and our brains:

Harper's Interview with Musicophilia author Oliver Sachs.

Five part video of Notes & Neurons from the World Science Festival featuring Bobby Mc Ferrin, 3 brain scientists, a science journalist, and a few other musicians.

Kicks off with a set from Bobby McFerrin then goes into a fascinating discussion of the brain science of music for a non-technical, non-musician audience including demonstrations of many of the concepts.
