Does listening to classical music make you smarter? Will playing piano make you smarter? Here is an interesting article on this by Duanne Shinn Will you become smarter if you play the piano? Does piano study increase the capability of your brain? The question is whether there is a correlation between mastering a musical instrument and one’s brain increasing in potential. It seems that there exists a correlation between early musical training and how strong the connection is between neurons in the brain; and even development of new routes. Studies have shown that there is a strong relationship between music training and long-term development in certain areas of the brain. Gottfried Schlaug, Herman Steinmetz and others at the University of Dusseldorf had an article about their studies published in Discover magazine in 1994. A comparison of an MRI of the brains of 27 right-handed men who play classical piano or string instruments to 27 right-handed men who did not play any musical instruments was done by this group. It is interesting to note that they found that in the musicians’ planum temporale – a brain structure associated with auditory processing – was larger in the left hemisphere and smaller in the right than was found in non musicians. There was also a thicker nerve-fiber tract between the hemispheres in the musicians. The differences were particularly pronounced in musicians who started learning before reaching the age of seven. The study of music and piano playing can also encourage growth of the corpus callosum, which is a link between the two sides of the brain, according to Shlaug. The corpus callosum was 10-15% thicker in musicians who started their training before the age of seven, than in non-musicians. At that time, Schlaug and other researchers theorized that a corpus callosum of greater size could possibly result in improved motor control by increasing the communication speed between the hemispheres. Given that, studies by Dartmouth professor Petr Janata in print 2002 in Science, has affirmed that music stimulated both sides of the brain and the areas containing memory and emotion more than any other stimuli. – See more at: —– * Please support me and my music by listening and sharing them on Youtube and Google+.

Can Classical Music Make You Smarter? – Glenn Wilson

Complete video at: Dr. Glenn Wilson, visiting professor of psychology at Gresham College, explains the effect of classical music – specifically Mozart – on the brain. Studies from the 1990s claimed Mozart improved test scores, but replicated studies since then have failed. —– How does music exert such extraordinary effects on our emotions? To what extent does it depend upon our nature (biological rhythms, instinctive reactions to certain sound patterns) and to what extent experience (e.g. conditioned associations, nostalgia)? Particular attention is given to the tension-reduction and optimal uncertainty theories of musical enjoyment. Professor Glenn Wilson considers whether there is any truth in the claim that listening to music can increase intelligence in the listener (the so-called ‘Mozart Effect’). – Gresham College Dr. Glenn Daniel Wilson is a psychologist best known for his work on attitude and personality measurement, sexual attraction, deviation and dysfunction, partner compatibility, and psychology applied to performing arts. Dr. Wilson is currently Visiting Professor of Psychology at Gresham College, London. Previously he was Reader in Personality at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College, London, and Adjunct Professor with the University of Nevada, Reno.

Studying Music Doesn’t Make You Smarter

There’s this popular notion that learning to play music will help a person to somehow become smarter and foster their overall creativity. But new research suggests that’s all baloney. Anthony explains the new report and why the benefit of music might just be myth after all. Read More: Musical myth “Children get plenty of benefits from music lessons — learning to play an instrument can be a great outlet for a child’s creativity, and the repeated practice can teach much-needed focus and discipline. What’s more, the payoff, whether it’s learning a new song — or just mastering a new chord — is often a boost of self-esteem.” Mozart effect The Mozart Effect “In 1993 Rauscher et al.1 made the surprising claim that, after listening to Mozart’s sonata for two pianos (K448) for 10 minutes, normal subjects showed significantly better spatial reasoning skills than after periods of listening to relaxation instructions designed to lower blood pressure or silence.” Does listening to Mozart really boost your brainpower? “You have probably heard of the Mozart effect. It’s the idea that if children or even babies listen to music composed by Mozart they will become more intelligent.” Musicians have ‘more grey matter’ “Professional musicians have more grey matter in a part of the brain involved in processing music, scientists have found.” Music improves brain power – in some performers “Mozart increases mental mass. Scientists revealed yesterday that members of a British symphony orchestra had more little grey cells than ordinary people in a part of the brain known as Broca’s area.” It’s Official: Musicians’ Brains Are Different “I read a few years back that cab drivers in London grow a larger hippocampus in their brains as they gain what’s known as “The Knowledge” (of the city’s roadways), but I hadn’t heard of any similar thing going on with musicians.” Listening to Music Lights Up the Whole Brain ” Finnish researchers have developed a groundbreaking new method that allows to study how the brain processes different aspects of music, such as rhythm, tonality and timbre (sound color) in a realistic listening situation.” Randomized controlled trial Watch More: The Key to a Catchy Song TestTube Wild Card Where Did Music Come From? ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won’t find anywhere else!
