I am one of many scientists who are also musicians. I'm the rhythm guitar player, song writer, and singer in The Amygdaloids, and also in the acoustic duo So We Are. Both groups play original songs that I put together, some about mind and brain and mental disorders. The latter are inspired by research that I have done, or general ideas in the brain and cognitive sciences, and the philosophy of mind. In the past decade I've recorded six albums with songs with titles like these on them: An Emotional Brain, Mind Over Matter, My Mind's Eye, Theory of My Mind, Anxious, and Only a Dream.

An Ensonglopedia is a collection of 26 peer-reviewed educational songs on a single theme, one for each letter of the alphabet. I tour these song collections regularly around the UK, and have produced accompanying music videos and a making-of documentary, which can be found on YouTube, as well as audio albums which are available on Spotify, iTunes etc.
