Music, Language and Rhythm

Music, Language and RhythmHalf an hour of musical training … and our brain will work like that of a musician.
One study shows that these classes rapidly activate the Left cerebral hemisphere, related to language and compositions. A study in England has observed that with only half an hour of musical training, a person’s brain begins to function as a musician, with more blood flow to the left side of the brain, that related to musical skills and language. Numerous studies have noted the beneficial effects of music on the brain, both in children and in adults who received youth training. By Carlos Gómez Abajo.
Or brain patterns in Britain suggests that musical training can alter the way we think.
About 14 musicians were evaluated to see which part of the brain they used to perform their musical and language skills, and researchers found that they use the left side for both tasks.
Eight other people – who were not musicians – were asked to perform the same task, but no correlation was found in brain activity when they performed the tests.
However, when non-musician volunteers were then exposed to a short period of musical training simply, there was an increase in blood flow to the left side of the brain when they faced tasks related to music and words. In fact, his brain began to work in the same way as a musician. The research was carried out by the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Liverpool (England) as part of a summer internship program.
Over time, adults are increasingly processing the rapidly changing sounds. However, as demonstrated by the study participants, those with four to 14 years of musical training, responded a thousandth of a second faster than those who did not. A thousandth of a second may not seem like much, researchers say, but multiplied by millions of neurons represents a major change in people’s lives.
