Ode to the Brain

(YouTube link)

The ninth song in the Symphony of Science series uses auto-tune to melodize scientists telling us about the amazing human brain. This creation features Robert Winston, Vilayanur Ramachandran, Jill Bolte Taylor, Bill Nye, Oliver Sacks, and the already-melodic Carl Sagan. Link -via Everlasting Blort

One of the most fascinating and easiest books to read on brains is; Altered Egos: How The Brain Creates The Self by Todd E. Feinberg. Alternatively, Kluge: The Haphazard Construction of the Human Mind by Gary Marcus is also entertaining and informative. If you want something more challenging pick up The Quest for Consciousness: A Neurobiological Approach by Christoph Koch, The Astonishing Hypothesis by Francis Crick or Consciousness: An Introduction by Susan Blackmore.

I enjoy autotune when it creates notes that were not intended. Much of this collection of passages has been presented to me before but I did not listen like I did just now.
I loathe autotune where it is used to crutch a talentless tool of the entertainment industry.
