Work by my lab and others has made a lot of progress in pinpointing the neural system centered on the amygdala that is involved in the learning and storage of emotional fear memory, as well as the synaptic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms involved (for reviews see: LeDoux,, ,, ,; Walker et al., ; Maren and Quirk, ; Rodrigues et al., ; Fanselow and Poulos, ; Maren, ; Phelps and LeDoux, ; Sah et al., ; Pape and Pare, ; Tully and Bolshakov, )... Since we were a neuroscience band, we decided to focus our set on songs about mind and brain and mental disorders... Theory of My Mind featured Grammy winning artist Rosanne Cash doing back up vocals on two songs, and Simon Baron-Cohen, leading proponent of idea that theory of mind is impaired in autism, on bass. “Theory of My Mind” had a lot of music on it, 13 songs in all... I try to connect music and the brain lyrically rather than through scientific activity... I do not have any formal musical training, and do not really know what the right questions to ask are... I am just happy to writes songs and play music... Music is not just fun... My two main books, The Emotional Brain (1996) and Synatpic Self (2002) have reached a large audience around the world... Now I am taking a different tack... I write songs with little nuggets of information about mind and brain and mental disorders as a way to hopefully stimulate interest in brain and mind, hoping the listener might then hunger to know more... Maybe they will go to the web, or even pick up a book on the brain... It is an experiment, the outcome of which is still unknown... Perhaps it will work... In the meantime, even if it does not, The Amygdaloids are having a good time.

Figure 1: The jacket cover of “Theory of My Mind” (released by Knock Out Noise, 2010).

Mentions: By 2008 we had a whole new set of songs, and had hooked up with an independent record label, Knock Out Noise, which agreed to record our second CD. It was originally titled, “Brainstorm,” but eventually formally released as “Theory of My Mind (Figure 1).” This title obviously is a play on the notion in psychology and philosophy known at theory of mind, the idea that social interactions between people involve in part the ability to put oneself in the shoes (mind) of another. Theory of My Mind featured Grammy winning artist Rosanne Cash doing back up vocals on two songs, and Simon Baron-Cohen, leading proponent of idea that theory of mind is impaired in autism, on bass. “Theory of My Mind” had a lot of music on it, 13 songs in all. We explored questions about memory (Mist of a Memory; Glue), free will (How Free Is Your Will; Crime of Passion; the Automatic Mind), the relation of mind and matter (Mind Over Matter; Piece of My Mind), emotions (Fearing), mental time travel (Imaginate), neurophysiology (Refractory Time), mental illness (Brainstorm), and, of course, theory of mind (Theory of My Mind).
