Dr. Edgar “Ted” Coons is a professor of Philosophy, Cognition & Perception at the Center for Neural Science, New York University(NYU).
Dr. Coons studied music composition and theory in college, where he became interested in how music affects the emotions of an audience.

Dr. Coons has also collaborated with music therapists in measuring and treating psychological and physiological stresses in musicians, and he is currently exploring the mechanism in the brain involved in empathy and how empathy unites us all through music.
