  • The reward network in our brains is one of the most fascinating areas of the brain. It is often the underlying network that propels our behaviour as well as override our good judgement. It is also one of the key networks in learning. That little buzz we get when we learn something new, closely followed […]

  • As always it is all about context and what you trying the measure. This study found that background music for musicians (not specified in the abstract) lead to greater productivity, believe to be because of greater attention levels, than non musicians.
