Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, October 9, 2013 2:59 PM

I'm a big believer in the idea of "flow" - that place you get to when you don't have to think about what you're doing - it just happens.  One of these studies showed that dancers who prepared for an upcoming routine by using "marking" and "visualization" techniques - delivered a far better performance than those who practiced at normal speed.  The thinking being that the more mentally prepared you are for an activity - the less of your brain you need to use to deliver it - which seems to leave more resource which you can use to make it excellent.

 

Not quite sure what it has to do with music - but damn it's fascinating!
