New research out of Scotland finds that musicians have sharper minds than those who have never touched an instrument. To find this, researchers gave participants with various levels of musical training two tests while they monitored the participants' brains. They found that the more hours the participant had practiced playing music, the quicker and more accurate their answers. Additionally, musicians were better at finding and fixing their mistakes than those without musical training. Study authors say this happens because musicians lean to adjust quickly and not let errors ruin their performances during concerts, and they found a link between music-making and increased activity in the front part of the brain.
