NIH/Kennedy Center Workshop on Music and the Brain

….[T]here is a growing body of research showing that listening to or making music profoundly changes the brain by modulating cognition, emotion, multisensory, and motor networks. [Researchers] described highly trained musicians as auditory-motor athletes and suggested that changes in their brains offer insight into functional and structural adaptations to music. The diverse studies described in the workshop are dramatically increasing our understanding of how the brain interacts with music, and this understanding is providing a foundation for promoting health and treating disease.
