Those who enjoy the works of legendary British psychedelic artists Pink Floyd would often describe listening to their work as being transcendental. A brand new breakthrough in neuroscience may have proven how transcendental Pink Floyd truly is.
A new research article titled ‘Music can be reconstructed from human auditory cortex activity using nonlinear decoding models’ by Bellier et al. has used a popular Pink Floyd to prove its hypothesis.
The researchers of the University of California, Berkeley achieved this by analysing what is known as intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) of 29 patients who listened to Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1’.
