Fermilab Lecture Series - Sound: Invisible Ally & Enemy of Brain Health
SOUND: INVISIBLE ALLY & ENEMY OF BRAIN HEALTH Dr. Nina Kraus, Northwestern University Although it is all around us all of the time, we rarely give much thought to our invisible yet powerful companion, sound. It shapes our brains for better and worse. Learning a second language or playing a musical instrument sharpens our brains. Lack of exposure to meaningful sound and overexposure to meaningless sound blunts our brains and stunts our development. There are ways to capture the imprint that sounds leave on our nervous systems, empowering us to learn more and more about this invisible ally and enemy of brain health.
