Music and Neurons

The embedded video is inspiring for many reasons, most of which will become apparent on viewing.

What is so incredible to me is how a musician (Bobby McFerrin) could go to a conference aimed primarily at scientists and blow every mind in the room with such a simple demonstration.

I defy anyone to watch it without smiling, getting chills, or at least reacting in some way. Enjoy:

The most interesting part to me is the ending where he gets the audience to sing about 8 to 10 notes that he never even demonstrated.
