The small, black arrow points to the region of our brain devoted to music appreciation and music-making. I didn't take this. Clipped from the Ottawa Citizen Newspaper, scanned and edited for uploading.

 

Here's a link to the McGill U. lab of Dr. R. Zattore who was featured in the Montreal Gazette feature article from where I got this photo. Any credit for this image should go to Dr. Zattore and his Lab in Montreal, Que. www.zlab.mcgill.ca/home.html
