The article reports on the effects of music on the brain. The author narrates his experience of reacting to Tal Wilkenfield play bass guitar on television with the band Beck. He discusses the literature on how music affects people and the use of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to scientifically examine the reactions of the brain to stimuli.
