Music constructs the brain

Brain scans allowed scientists to discover how years of musical practice are changing the minds of professional musicians.

So, it was shown that the brain of musicians in certain areas has much
more nerve cells. Professor Gottfred Schlaug examined professional
musicians and 15 people who have nothing to do with music using the methodNMR Both groups were represented by men. 4 areas of the brain of the musicians contained
more gray matter than non-musician brains. All 4 zones are usually
associated with musical abilities.

However, the professor is convinced that additional research is needed to
finally figure out how does the restructuring of the brain tissue in accordance
with professional activities. Alternative explanation of the fact
It may be that these people were born with such a brain, which “made” them talented musicians.

However, animal experiments have shown that the brain can really be reconfigured in accordance with repetitive activity.

By the same result came researchers who studied the brain of people. So,
it has been shown that, for example, the brains of taxi drivers have a much larger hippocampus
compared to other people. It is this part of the brain that is associated with navigational
tasks.

Moreover, it has been shown that taxi drivers who have more
hours of driving experience, some areas of the hippocampus are larger than those of drivers,
who have less driving experience.
