I came across some research sites doing cutting edge work on psychoacoustics and audio.

I was shocked by how little I understood or knew on the subject.

Here is one such: https://research.hud.ac.uk/institutes-centres/apl/resources/

Time and the relentless march of science and knowledge wait for no one, it seems. My faith in my knowledge of audio is shaken

But (as with many other issues) I can insist this is not true, ignore this and continue with my dogmatic thinking.

Now if only I could “unsee” the link...

If you want more here is a bunch: http://www.bostonaudiosociety.org/links2.htm

I have concluded that when it comes to technical matters related to Audio I am severely afflicted by the Dunning–Kruger effect

(This is a cognitive bias where people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability.:()

According to a study conducted by researchers at Canada's McGill University and published in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, listening to music was linked with an improved immune system and lower stress levels. "We were able to document the neurochemical mechanisms by which music has an effect in four domains: management of mood, stress, immunity and as an aid to social bonding," observed Daniel Levitin, Ph.D., M.Sc., a neuroscientist and musician who was previously at McGill University.


And what can music to to your mood and more?
