The brain knows what music you’re listening to

Different brain waves are given off in the brain when we listen to different music (rock, jazz, classical). Exciting research—NOT.

Brain shaped by native language and music

Our brains develop based on stimuli they receive, and some of that includes auditory stimuli, or sounds: music, language, other noises.

Research shows that runners' brains, like those of musicians, are more connected in their networks of neurons. What's that about?

How musicians’ brains work as they play
