Joseph LeDoux and Daniela Schiller study fear at NYU. They will be joined by fellow Amygdaloid, Gerald McCollom, in an experiment in the multimedia communication of neuroscience. A lecture on fear will be interspersed amongst The Amygdaloids’ original tunes about mind and brain and mental disorders performed “unplugged” by three quarters of the local science rock band.
LeDoux says, “Music is the most powerful form of communication, and we’ll be using it to shoot scientific information straight into the sweet spots of emotion and memory in the brain. We’ll definitely have fun trying to do this, and maybe we’ll even succeed.”
