Musical training makes lifelong changes to your brain

Research not only confirms the Mussila theory on the positive effect of musical training on children, but it also proves the biological impact it has on the brain. Prior studies comparing adult musicians and non-musicians have revealed structural and functional differences in the brain. A research conducted to address the question whether childhood musical training induces these changes, has provided evidence for training-induced structural brain plasticity in early childhood. Only 15 months of musical training in early childhood correlated with improvements. These findings shed light on brain plasticity, and suggest that structural brain differences in adult experts are likely due to training-induced brain plasticity.
