Chaotic Brain

Here's a fascinating glimpse of what all the new brain research is turning up. There's no mention of music, but there's an explanation of the old "fine line between genius and madness" chestnut. Seems brain function uses chaotic mechanisms in its normal workings. Just the right amount and you're a genius - somewhat less and your IQ is lower - somewhat more and it's a disability.

There's also mention of the brain using various frequencies of synaptic firings to do various things at the same time, sort of like how there are lots of radio frequencies simultaneously, but that each station can be heard clearly.
