THE BRAIN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
A pair of Johns Hopkins and government scientists have discovered that when jazz musicians improvise, their brains turn off areas linked to self-censoring and inhibition, and turn on those that let self-expression flow.

Are you a mover, a perceiver, a stimulator, or an adapter? Modes of thinking can be understood in terms of how the top and bottom—rather than right and left—parts of the brain interact.
MIT and Harvard neuroscientists explain why the practice helps tune out distractions and relieve pain.
