Dr Daniel J. Levitin, McGill University

McGill University is home to some of the leading-edge research on the relationships between music and the brain. A number of McGill neuroscientists are publishing in this field, including Daniel J. Levitin, the author of two very popular books on this subject:  This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession (Dutton, 2006) and The World in Six Songs: How the Musical Brain Created Human Nature (Dutton, 2008).
