The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 703: Music vs. Your Brain

This weekend on the Ongoing History we go deep into your brain by examining 9 Amazing Things About Your Brain and Music

  • Wanna know how your brain processes dopamine and that does to you?
  • Music can be better than drugs…for surgery, anyway. And maybe for coma patients, too.
  • How music memories differ from other memories…in other words why does you brain fill in the lyrics and music when it stops
  • Got a song stuck in your head? There’s a solution for that too.

You’ll feel smarter simply by listening AND these are great points you can use during those awkward conversation moments over the holiday season.

    Hey, Alan! Can I listen to this episode anywhere online? I LOVED it when I heard it last week on Live 88.5 in Ottawa, and wanted to listen again, and share it with a friend.
