The Effects of Digital Music on the Brain

Men's Health has a short article on the brain's reaction to digital music, including a link to a video from Florida Atlantic University showing the differences in a brain scan between a piece of music played by a human and the same piece by a computer.

It's interesting that the brain reacts differently between the two; I would not have expected. I also enjoy the poke made at auto-tuning and vocoders, but then I think most good music died out in the 90s.
