Nancy Kanwisher's Lab at The McGovern Institute at M.I.T. is helping to understand mind-brain integration using Neuroimaging applications to shine light on music and language processing.
"Scientists have long wondered if the human brain contains neural mechanisms specific to music perception. Now, for the first time, MIT neuroscientists have identified a neural population in the human auditory cortex that responds selectively to sounds that people typically categorize as music, but not to speech or other environmental sounds."
