Neuroacoustics: Integrating the strengths of computer technology and human biology through music
abstract: Music is entertaining. Nonetheless, it serves vastly different functions as well. In the course of understanding why these functions are essential, we can understand why we continuously create, not just art, but also technology, even under life-threatening conditions. Of course, determining who truly understands this new tool (such as a computer) cannot be objectively decided. Nonetheless, understanding a tool's uses and understanding the needs that give rise to its users' behavior is related but very different.
