This is Your Brain on Music
Music stimulates
many emotions and creativity in the brain

Any emotion can be expressed through
music, by the connection between the scientifices of music and the human brain
There is constant
activity in the brain
stimulating the emotions and the
body as a whole when listening to music
Things so unlike that there is no basis for comparison.
Based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system
Not taking (something) into account; regardless of.
is the scientific study of the actions of drugs and their effects on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior.
Any of the sciences, such as neurochemistry, that deal with the structure or function of the nervous system and brain.
A set of principles underlying and guiding the work of a particular artist or artistic movement.
By: Daniel J. Levitin
Published in 2006
There are many examples throughout the novel
which supports the thesis.
Such as when Levitin said "Music is being used
to manipulate our emotions, and we tend to accept,
if not outright enjoy, the power of music to make
us experience these different feelings."

My Name is Julia Waite
Some of the things I love are music, sports, nature, art, and being surrounded by wonderful people and animals
After High School I plan to graduate collage with my doctorates in Physical Therapy
I am a volunteer at Blue Star Equiculture a non profit rescue horse farm which I love being apart of
This picture is from an amazing day at Blue Star walking horses in the fields out back where a beautiful double rainbow appeared after a ferocious storm
Music is an art as
well as a science
reaching into the physical brain as well as the creative mind
Some new things I learned
I learned many new things in this selection to do
with the physical brain and its functions. As well as
music and creativity, and how it can affect and stimulate
the brain in so many ways on so many different levels.
Another thing I learned was that listening to music
coordinates more disparate parts of the brain than
almost anything else and playing music uses even
more. I also learned there are many connections between the scientific and the creative aspects of music such as tracing music's deep ties to memories.
My Personal Reaction to the Book
I enjoyed the book 'This is Your Brain on Music' greatly. There are so many new things I learned from this selection. It was great to read about two of my favorite subjects as one science and music. There was so much that I did not know about music as well as science, and it was incredible to see how closely related the two are. I loved reading every part of the book, because I learned so many new things in each chapter. I especially liked learning about all the connections that are present between music, and science within the brain. I personally liked the author right from the beginning, he had so much knowledge and experiences to share having been well involved in the music industry and had met so many talented musicians and artists.
Who I would recommend this Book to
I would recommend this book to an Honors Biology student, who is interested in the anatomy of the brain aspect of biology, because it goes into great explanations of the connections the brain has to music and science. I would also recommend this book to chemistry students because it relates a lot to neurochemistry and neuroscience. I would also recommend this book to students in any music course because it is relate able on all levels of music. And last but not least I would recommend this book to all musicians and music lovers, for its outstanding knowledge and understanding.
My Rating Scale
I rate this book an 8 out of 8 on the open note scale
