The impact music has on people is massive! Music lyrics and the tempo can make people achieve anything they put their mind to.  This concept is first introduced in chapter 8.  Daniel Levitin studied how music could relate to cognition.  He discovered that while listening to music it increased the amount of antibodies, sterotion and oxytocin, which have a significant impact on the human brain.

I began with physical anthropology. I was taught how to measure the size of the brain of a human being who had been dead a long time, who was all dried out. I bored a hole in his skull, and I filled it with grains of polished rice. Then I emptied the rice into a graduated cylinder. I found this tedious.  I switched to archaeology, and I learned something I already knew: that man had been a maker and smasher of crockery since the dawn of time. And I went to my faculty adviser, and I confessed…

April 2005 Measuring little more than a metre in height, and with a brain the size of a grapefruit, Homo floresiensis may seem out of place on the human family tree. But according to the Indonesian and Australian scientists who discovered her fossilised skeleton on the island of Flores in Indonesia, Homo floresiensis, or 'Flo' for short, bears a strong resemblance to our closest evolutionary relative, albeit in miniature. Her relatively small teeth, prominent brow ridge, and low, broad brain…

18,000 years ago, the remote Indonesian island of Flores was home to a population of tiny humans. They stood only about 3.5 feet tall on their large feet, and their skulls housed unusually small brains approximately the size of a grapefruit. The identity of these ‘hobbits’ has been hotly debated for years: Were they modern humans suffering a disease, or a new species, Homo floresiensis?

The real ‘hobbit’ had larger brain than thoughtThe findings add to evidence that the hobbit was a unique species of humans after all, not a deformed modern human.

Exploring the Evolutionary Growth in Hominid Brain Size - Dr. Stephen Cunnane, author of Survival of the Fattest, argues for the importance of stable food sources and baby fat in the evolution of brain size. Infant's brains use of the body's energy.

A fossil of a diminutive human nicknamed "the Hobbit" likely represents a previously unrecognized species of early humans, according to the results of a detailed comparison of the fossil's brain case with those of humans, apes and other human ancestors. Skeptics had argued that the Hobbit, discovered in Indonesia and first announced last fall, could have been an individual who suffered from a disorder that limited brain growth known as microcephaly.
