I find brain science absolutely fascinating. You know when you get a song stuck in your head, and it won't go away? Well, actually, it's getting stuck in your auditory cortex.
According to Wired.com, a solution exists. Find that and a couple of other tidbits about the brain on music here. (Though frankly, I'm skeptical about tidbit #1--even European music hasn't always used this tuning system, and other cultures around the world have very different tuning systems.)
