Brain music – music from brain scans

A very interesting New Scientist article (video above), about researcher Dan Lloyd’s work in converting functional MRI scans of brains to musical sounds, led me to find the further videos below (see all of Lloyd’s YouTube videos).

It’s fascinating that the brain scans of people with schizophrenia sound distinctly different from scans of mentally healthy people.

More cynically, I can foresee the idle rich paying to have FMRI scans of their own brains made and converted to video / audio, for the edification of themselves or their family / friends. Business opportunity there…
