Thank you, Marc! I look forward to listening to some of these. Bring your iPod to Philly with you and you can be the official DJ of the Neuroscience Boot Camp!

More songs for your neuroethics playlist can be found in the albums of the NYC-based rock band, the Amygdaloids -- see


Thanks Martha! I'll be happy to act as official DJ, and to share that job with anybody who would prefer not to have the program monopolized by my musical tastes. I've learned after many years of making music mixes for others, that even songs I'm convinced are undeniably the best songs ever written sometimes mysteriously don't sound as good to other people as they do to me. I'm hoping some of the neuroscience research we review at the Boot Camp can help me better understand why that is.

Thanks also for letting me know about The Amygdaloids. My 6 year old daughter wants to be both a neurobiologist and an artist (recording and otherwise) when she grows up, so that band can serve as a terrific role model for her.

Thank you for this post! Just quick thoughts:

Green Day "Basket Case" (Melodramatic fools. Neurotic to the bone... I went to a shrink To analyze my dreams...Am I just paranoid? Or I'm just stoned)

and not so "pop" but AMAZING: Michael Nyman's opera version of The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat.
