The Neuroscience of Music and the Brain

If music is such an important aspect of people’s lives from the time they are born, why is it that it doesn’t really occur to us, as a society, to provide people with music when they can no longer do what is necessary to provide it for themselves?

Music has power, and we need to remember to keep everyone plugged in!
