How Hearing Shapes the Mind

Hour 2:           How do the sounds we hear affect our lives and why do we automatically focus on some sounds – like spoken words or music – and ignore others? We’ll talk this hour with Seth Horowitz, neuroscientist and assistant research professor at Brown University. He digs deep into the topic in his book “The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind” (Bloomsbury USA, 2012).
