2) What is also interesting is that music enhances higher brain functions, thus a regular music listener may soon become an intellectual.

@Nat093,
Nat, (1) without a comma after "functions" can be misread by the speedreader as the listener himself having been enhanced

(2) is wrong 'cause two sentences are separated by a comma

(3) is pretty much okay

@dalehileman,
Actually, I will utter this sentence during my presentation, so I am wondering which of them will sound better.

@dalehileman,
"What is also interesting is that music enhances higher brain functions, so/thus a regular music listener may soon become an intellectual"

Which of these two ("so" or "thus") sounds better in this sentence?

@Nat093,
Nat I'd go "so" although "thusc" is okay with a slight pause
