As he tells Dr. Friedman, the health "secrets" he describes in his new book, Live Long And . . .: What I Learned Along the Way, are not really secrets at all. Eating well, exercise, and proper rest are common ideologies among those who live long and prosper in life.

EP 1066B - Of Sound Mind: How Our Brain Constructs a Meaningful Sonic World
Making sense of sound is one of the hardest jobs we ask our brains to do. Making sense of sound is one of the hardest jobs we ask our brains to do. In her book Of Sound Mind, Nina Kraus examines the partnership of sound and brain, showing for the first time that the processing of sound drives many of the brain's core functions. Our hearing is always on—we can't close our ears the way we close our eyes—and yet we can ignore sounds that are unimportant. We don't just hear; we engage with sounds. Kraus explores what goes on in our brains when we hear a word—or a chord, or a meow, or a screech.Sound plays an unrecognized role in both healthy and hurting brains. Kraus explores the power of music for healing as well as the destructive power of noise on the nervous system. She traces what happens in the brain when we speak another language, have a language disorder, experience rhythm, listen to birdsong, or suffer a concussion. Nina Kraus, Ph.D., is a scientist, inventor, and amateur musician who studies the biology of auditory learning. She began her career measuring responses from single auditory neurons and was one of the first to show that the adult nervous system has the potential for reorganization following learning; these insights in basic biology galvanized her to investigate auditory learning in humans.
