The Zuckerman Institute at Columbia University is involved in cutting-edge research on the brain and mind. I created this gif-ographic (like an infographic, but with simple animation) to explain the research of Randy M. Bruno, PhD, a researcher at the Zuckerman Institute. Dr. Bruno studies cognition - a complex coordination by billions of neurons to create our sophisticated thoughts and emotions. When reading about his research, some of the conclusions reminded me of my training in music, so I thought that would be a good way to explain this area of neuroscience. For more information on his research, view the Zuckerman Institute website.
