Your brain is a grey, wet, squishy pattern seeking machine. From daily changes in light to microsecond scale responses to music and voices, your brain runs on and generates the rhythms of your life. And because we are so rhythmocentric at such a basic level, events that violate your normal rhythms often have serious impacts on us. The field of chronobiology examines how the timing of environmental and internal events affects our cognition, our health and our daily life, whether it’s transient like focusing on a task or longer term like getting enough sleep.
Next week is National Sleep Awareness Week 2013. To kick it off I’ve invited neuroscientist and author Dr. Seth Horowitz back as my guest for another episode of the Sound Brain Fitness teleseminar series. Please join us for this free teleseminar on Monday evening, March 4th at 8 pm eastern for what is sure to be an engaging hour as we explore:
- Rhythms of the environment and how they affect the rhythms of the brain
- Rhythms and patterns of sleep – where they come from and what they do.
- Interrupted sleep patterns – the consequences of insomnia, disruption, and EDS
- Weapons of choice – tools for resetting the sleep clock and their side effects
- Why an auditory sleep aid may be right for you
I hope you’ll listen. You can register here.

Dual personalities, when it comes to people, we understand the connotation. But did you know that sound also has a dual personality? One harming, and the other healing…
This is the premise of the feature article in the Winter 2013 issue of Hearing Health Magazine from the Hearing Health Foundation. Journalist Elizabeth Stump interviewed me, and my friend, neuroscientist and author of The Universal Sense, Seth Horowitz, for an exploration into the fascinating world of sound. You can read it starting on page 26 of the online edition here. You can also find my interview on the importance of respecting sound on pages 30-31.

I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed by Dr. Jerry Teplitz on his Healthy Alternatives program on WebTalkRadio.net.
The program is titled Using Sound to Heal and you can listen to it here.

Back in June I had the honor of being the first guest for a new teleconference series from the Sound and Music Alliance. Dr. Zacciah Blackburn interviewed me about our work at Advanced Brain Technologies, delving into some of the history and evolution of The Listening Program. This link will take you to the recording of the program. I had a great time during this interview and hope you enjoy it. If you have any comments or questions for me, feel free to comment here.
