“Of Sound Mind”

Written by Nina Kraus, Ph.D

OF SOUND MIND  How Our Brain Constructs a Meaningful Sonic World makes the case that the sounds of the world around us impact the development of our brains, the abilities and weaknesses we develop, and who we are as human beings.

A holistic understanding of the biological consequences of our lives in sound positions us to make better choices for ourselves, education and medicine. What we value in sound has consequences on how we build the sonic world we live in. The book is written with the intellectually and spiritually curious reader in mind.

The first part of the book (How Sound Works) views the hearing brain as interactive biological circuitry. The sound mind is vast— inextricably woven into our thoughts, our movement, our feelings, and all of our senses. The bulk of the book (Our Sonic Selves) applies this knowledge to topics including rhythm, language, music, bilingualism, birdsong, noise, aging, healthy (athletes) and hurting brains (concussion).  OF SOUND MIND offers a perspective on our sonic, past, present and future. 80 illustrations celebrate the art in science. Personal stories show how science is a deeply human endeavor. In a time when we are constantly running, our resources strained, and our sense of connection to others and the world ever more tenuous, Of Sound Mind invites us to consider how sound connects us.
