Important Research on the Brain and Music

March 23rd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized


The news has been hard to miss: in study after study, scientists are finding correlations between music making and some of the deepest workings of the human brain.
Research has linked active music making with better language and math ability, improved school grades, better-adjusted social behavior, and improvements in “spatial-temporal reasoning,” which is the foundation of engineering and science. Physicists mapping brain activity have even identified patterns that resemble musical notes.
Take a look at some of the exciting findings linked below, and check back often for new developments in this exciting field.

    Hi Alice,
    There is a lot of talk about Mozart and how his music affects the mind and body. I feel that man did a lot of research into the natural sounds and wrote his music to replicate real life sounds, as he developed “The Groove” around them.

    The fact is music is a direct “Plug-In” to the spirit. It communicates to the soul in a way nothing else can do. Try watching a movie with the sound off.

    They talk about “The Secret.” I feel the true secret is the effect music is having on the mind, body, and spirit that people are still willing to over look, even in these days of technological understanding.

    Thank goodness for you and all you are doing.

    Please keep up the good work of sharing the information you discover.

    In the nighty power of “Peace, Love, and Compassion,”
    Tony Dollars
