The reward of music

The reward of music

The scientists found that the songs that triggered the strongest response from both the emotional and intellectual parts of the brain were correlated with a willingness to pay more.

And that suggests that people get not just a sensory reward from listening to music but a direct intellectual one too, even if they're unaware of it.

Music was the key to our evolutionary progress

Music was the key to our evolutionary progress

Music may, in other words, tap into a brain mechanism that was key to our evolutionary progress. 

The ability to recognize patterns and generalize from experience to predict what's likely to happen in the future. In short, the ability to imagine is something humans do far better than any other animal. It allowed us (aided by a far less glamorous opposable thumb) to take over the world.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
