New research tells us that our relationships are critical to our survival. Chatting with friends over a meal or taking a morning walk with a neighbor serve important biological functions. Our era of constant digital connection is also one of increasing social isolation - Facebook depression. Research shows that without sustained social interaction, the human brain may become as impaired as one that has incurred a traumatic head injury. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30pm when Al speaks with developmental psychologist and author Susan Pinker. Her new book, The Village Effect affirms the importance of a real social network and provides principles for creating your own village.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
