Music Understood To Stimulate Your Mind More than Brain Training Apps
Lumosity a purveyor of brain training applications has recently been fined $2 million earlier this year due to claims that its products do little if nothing at all to improve general and age-related mental abilities.
The Guardian has recently conducted a report in which they assert that instrument training may help people of all ages, even helping those recovering from brain injuries.
Neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday of the University of Westminster asserted to the Guardian that: "Music probably does something unique. It stimulates the brain in a very powerful way, because of our emotional connection with it."
A number of different studies have suggested that playing an instrument increases grey matter volume in various brain regions whilst simultaneously strengthening long range cognitive connections.
"Music reaches parts of the brain that other things can't" said Loveday. "It's a strong cognitive stimulus that grows the brain in a way that nothing else does, and the evidence that musical training enhances things like working memory and language is very robust. "
