Musical Training May Improve Attention
[Source; Medical News Today]
The benefits of music for the human brain are numerous.
Some studies have suggested that musical training improves blood flow in brain areas involved in language processing.
More recent research has shown that listening to music may even “motivate” the brain to learn by stimulating neural networks associated with reward processing.
Now, a new study suggests that musical training may also have an effect on attentional control. Researchers led by Paulo Barraza, Ph.D. — from the Center for Advanced Research in Education at the University of Chile in Santiago — examined the link between musical training and attention.
