Thanks for this, Jerome; the presentation is the sort of thing I like to find. I also enjoyed Brain Rules, and I've been musing about it on my blog, seeing how I can tie the rules to issues of training and learning.

You might also enjoy This is Your Brain on Music, by Daniel Levitin -- a different perspective, often pursuing pathways further than Medina does. I was especially struck my Levitin's chapter, "What is a musician?" He explores the idea of expertise, and offers some evidence to support the idea that to become an expert, you need to spend around 10,000 hours in your craft. (It's a rough figure, not a law of physics, but an intriguing one.)
