What do you get when you mix the son of a Louisiana butcher, a dome builder, a philosophy major, and an ex-Israeli solider?

NYU scientists who play rock n' roll, of course. Joseph LeDoux, Daniela Schiller, and Nina Galbraith Curley are neuroscientists who study emotion and memory functions of the brain, and Tyler Volk is an environmental scientist who has also written about mind and brain. Their original songs are all about mental life and mental disorders (A Trace, Memory Pill, An Emotional Brain, Inside of Me, Mind-Body Problem, and so on). The Amygdaloids call their music "Heavy Mental".

Check out their songs here...
