This Is How Music Can Change Your Brain

This Is How Music Can Change Your Brain | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Actively learning to play an instrument can help a child's academic achievement

 

Summary from BrainHQ December 2014

A new study from Northwestern University has found that kids who actively learn to play musical instruments may be training their brains to process sounds better. But the research showed that a key feature is active participation in learning music—and that passive participation doesn’t seem to confer the same benefits.

Where Music and Empathy Converge in the Brain

Where Music and Empathy Converge in the Brain | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

A new study suggests that people who are highly empathic process music differently in their brains.
BY JILL SUTTIE | OCTOBER 22, 2018


Music seems to be a social glue. Think of how love songs enhance our romantic feelings, how marching bands intensity our affinity for the home team, or how huge rock concerts make us feel one with a crowd of thousands. Music has some special power to increase our sense of connection and help us affiliate with others.

But why? What’s happening in our brains that makes an isolated set of sounds resonate in these ways? A new neuroscience study aimed to find out.

The Tyranny of Being On Task - Edutopia | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
There seem to be forces in education that push us to make sure students are on task. Why do we attempt to meet that demand when we know it’s unreasonable? Why do we demand on task behavior when it is not equivalent to student engagement? Isn’t it OK for students to be off task from time to time? In fact, don’t students need time to be off task? To take it to another level, what if off task is really on task?

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 18, 2018 5:03 PM

Abstract

 

This paper analyses major social shifts in reading by comparing publishing statistics with results of empirical research on reading. As media statistics suggest, the last five decades have seen two shifts: from textual to visual media, and with the advent of digital screens also from long-form to short-form texts. This was accompanied by new media-adequate reading modes: while long-form content invokes immersed and/or deep reading, we predominantly skim online social media. Empirical research on reading indicates that the reading substrate plays an important role in reading processes. For example, comprehension suffers when complex texts are read from screens. This paper argues that media and reading trends in recent decades indicate broader social and cultural changes in which long-form deep reading traditionally associated with the printed book will be marginalised by prevailing media trends and the reading modes they inspire. As these trends persist, it may be necessary to find new approaches to vocabulary and knowledge building.
