Rhythm and the Brain Project – A Gazzaley – Hart Collaboration

  1. There was no place for a comment on the webpage, Trophallaxis, so I’m leaving one here. Dr. Gazzaley said “…how we can influence brain rhythms through novel interventions (e.g., neuromodulation, rhythm training, video game training, neurofeedback)”; my question is, why novel ones? That is, don’t normal activities “influence” brain rhythms? Furthermore, wouldn’t rhythmic activities be the first place to look? For instance, music, song, and dance; and best would be to examine brain changes when people are dancing to music and singing at the same time, or dancing to music without singing?
    I would also ask, why didn’t he leave a comment box or ‘like’ button on his blog? Those are really pretty standard on blogs now, and not just on wordpress blogs.
    And, he seems to have some unexamined assumptions in his thinking. For instance, he says “synchronized neural networks from which our minds emerge”, when that should be what he is experimenting to find out, rather than assuming that it is the case. He is a doctor twice, big credentials, and so ought to know that the evidence that the mind is not in the brain is very strong, and demands that scientists test for those ideas he assumes, and not just state them as facts.
