Your brain is noise-cancelling
When you're shopping for a new pair of headphones one of the best features to have is noise-cancelling technology. Drowning out the random noises around you lets you really sink into the music, or whatever else you're listening to, but a new study suggests that the brain actually has some pretty fancy noise-cancelling power of its own.
The research, which was published in Nature, was conducted by researchers at Duke University. Using a number of different experiments, the team was able to demonstrate that even the tiny brains of mice have incredible noise-cancelling capabilities tied to a system that predicts auditory feedback before it even happens.
