How Hearing Works:  A TED Talk

The Science of Hearing

The ear's task is to convert sound energy into neural signals; the brain's is to receive and process the information those signals contain. To understand how that works, Douglas L. Oliver follows a sound on its journey into the ear. 

Music and the Mind:  Concert for Sound Health at the Kennedy Center

In this talk, Dr. Nina Kraus makes clear “sound ingredients:  pitch, timing, timbre, sound processing".  She demonstrates sound recordings from brains. This demonstrates the way healthy brains process sound in a very analogous way.

Kraus explores the cognitive and biological benefits of music training.
