Audition and Music

As can be argued for the creation stories of the Bible (In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. - John 1:1) and many other religious traditions, modern science states that the universe began with a sound...a BIG BANG: A big beat, a Sound. What some call our second most important sense, AUDITION, our sense of hearing, has been thoroughly explained in terms of anatomy, phyisology, chemistry, psychology, NEUROSCIENCE and... MUSIC. We've created this wonderful site to explore topics of neuroscience relevant to Audition and Music.
