Young Musicians Reap Longterm Neuro Benefits

Young Musicians Reap Longterm Neuro Benefits | Algorithmic Music Composition | Scoop.it

hose piano lessons you endured as a child, and those hours your parents made you practice, may benefit you in your later years. Even if you haven’t played in decades. So finds a study in the Journal of Neuroscience. [Travis White-Schwoch et al, Older Adults Benefit from Music Training Early in Life: Biological Evidence for Long-Term Training-Driven Plasticity] 

As we age, our response to fast-changing sounds slows down—which affects how we understand speech—and the world around us. But people who played instruments when they were young respond a bit quicker to such complex sounds. And the more years study subjects played instruments, the faster their brains responded to speech sound.
 
The researchers say that early acoustic experience may train the central auditory system—and that the changes are retained throughout life.
 
Previous studies of musicians have revealed that years of musical training may offset cognitive decline. This latest analysis shows that even if all you did was reluctantly pound a piano or blow a horn 40 years ago, you may still be reaping neurological benefits.

The art and tech sides of creativity - The MIT Tech

 If you've never Googled “arts at MIT,” I guarantee you'll be shocked at the vast array of arts activities, exhibits and events going on every week on campus, from alumni-produced films and student performances to professional shows by one of our many visiting artists. 


A2RU is a group of universities that — to put it frankly — aren’t viewed-as “artsy.” It includes MIT, Stanford, Virginia Tech, University of Michigan, and twenty-five others. Founded in 2011, the Alliance addresses the concern that universities are suffering from “a kind of mass amnesia for the heuristic power of art-making, and for the many functional similarities between art-making and scientific modes of inquiry,” according to AR2U’s founding proposal.
