Daniel Levitin

Daniel Levitin is an American-Canadian writer, cognitive neuroscientist and musician. Levitin originally enrolled to study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston but left his studies to join various bands and work as a music producer. He returned to academia in his thirties to study cognitive psychology and neuroscience at Stanford University, where he earned his BA, and subsequently went on to obtain a Master’s degree and a PhD from the University of Oregon.

Levitin’s scientific work focuses on the neuroscience of music perception and cognition – the topic which he explored in his first, chart-topping This is Your Brain on Music (2006). It was followed by The World in Six Songs: How the Musical Brain Created Human Nature (2008), The Organized Mind (2015), A Field Guide to Lies and Statistics (2017), and The Changing Mind (2020).

Challenging widely held assumptions about the diminishing abilities of an ageing brain, leading neuroscientist Daniel Levitin argues that we should view getting older as a beneficial experience rather than a form of cognitive entropy. Persuasively argued and consistently surprising, The Changing Mind will alter your perception of the relationship between age and intellect.
