As a dumb bone doctor, all this neuroscience stuff is WAY over my head. I do however think that this has been an informative discussion. It exemplifies that there is a lot of passion regarding oud, and all that involves around it. That is mostly a good thing. What my field has however seared in my brain, is 2 fundamental laws: 1)assume nothing and 2) trust no one. Therefore, I smell, see, assess, listen, experience and make my own judgements.
