Newer, bigger, and better machines are finding mind-blowing things going on between our ears.
When there's music.
Here's the deal.
When scientists look at brains using FMRIs and PET scans while subjects are doing normal things, the parts of the noggin associated with those things light up as expected.
Doctors figure this happens because our brains break down what we're hearing into its different parts, analyze those parts, and then put them back together before it's time for the first foot tap or booty shake.
