music on the brainMusic has the enormous potential to engage and impact the entire brain. After all, the auditory system is the first to develop in utero. And, at the end of life, the last to go. With the advent of brain scanning and other recent research options, studies prove music’s positive effects on the human brain. Through narrative, current and relevant research, and an easy-to-understand format, authors Taylor and Hudson offer a glimpse into the how, the where, and the why regarding the benefits of music on the brain. How can a person utilize music to better his or her life? By understanding more about the brain’s relationship to music. Anecdotes in Music on the Brain provide real-life examples. The Muse of Music adds her own touch. Grace Notes introduce points in the upcoming chapter. Beyond education, however, this book suggests a greater goal: to help you identify and own (or re-own) the many wonderful musical components living in your own brain. Whether performer, amateur, or informed and dedicated listener, discover how music can help you maximize your most important musical instrument—your brain.

In one sense Amelia's story began long before her second birthday. In another sense, it started four decades later as her hidden life began to unravel, when the secrets layered upon secrets surfaced, when her body remembered and rebelled, when her brain recalled—and the silence screamed. Amelia's true story is told in her own words, along with chapter notes linking research with her experience.

Both sowing seeds, impacting countless lives—one related to church planting; the other, to understanding brain function. Worlds apart. Similar challenges.
