You Don’t Have ADHD, You’re Just Listening To Too Much Bassnectar

You don’t have ADHD, you’re just listening to too much Bassnectar….well not really, but hear us out. A new study published in the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences has established a link between brain activity mimicking the tempos and pitches of audio files. This discovery enhances previous theories supporting that neurons will activate and fire in a synchronicity to external noises such as speech. Using Magnetoencelphalography, “MEG” a technique that measures magnetic fields generated by brain activity, researchers were able to draw distinct relationships between individuals listening to a track and cerebral function that occurred during the song. While there were differences in susceptibility between those who had musical training and those who did not, in all individuals brain activity began to sync with patterns of the audio played. Got two minutes? Let the scientists explain in the video above, and happily troll your friends that think that EDM is a way for corporations to enact mind control.
