How playing an instrument benefits your brain – Anita Collins

Translator Rami Nawaya Validator Khalid marbou. Did you know that every time the musicians pick up their instrument Fireworks go off all over their brain? They may appear calm and focused on the outside In reading the notes and applying the required movement accurately and literally, But there is a wild party going on inside their minds. How do we know that In the past few decades, Neuroscientists have made qualitative advances In understanding? How the brain functions through direct observation By tools such as magnetic resonance imaging and tomography scanners.

These devices are installed on people And when reading or doing exercise exercises, Certain centers of the brain are active Where the brain activity can be monitored. But when the researchers asked the participants to listen to music Watch fireworks, Several centers of the brain are stimulated at the same time, While working on sound analysis And it separates it into parts to understand its elements such as melody and rhythm. Then it puts together the parts again to become a unified singing experience, Our brains get all of these things done in a second. Between the moment we hear the music and the moment we start interacting with the rhythm And when scientists switched from observing brains. Listen to music to the brains of musicians, The little fireworks turned into a wild party.

It turns out that listening to music turns the brain on Some amazing activities. As for playing the mind is just as sporty with the body Neuroscientists have observed that multiple places are active in the brain Simultaneously, with the analysis of various information With complex, interconnected and high speed sequences. But what about composition that ignites, the brain? The research is still young, but neuroscientists have a great idea When playing an instrument. Each area of the brain is activated simultaneously, Especially visual, auditory and kinesthetic.

As with any other job, you do regular continuous musical exercises To strengthen brain function, allowing us to apply that power On other activities. The most prominent difference between listening and playing music Is that playing requires fine motor skills. It is managed in both halves. It also integrates linguistic and mathematical precision And that is managed by the left hemisphere, With fictional and creative content managed by the right half. For these reasons, it turned out to be strummed.

It increases the size and activity of the corpus callosum. It is the bridge between both halves. This allows messages to cross the brain faster and through more pathways. This may allow musicians to solve problems With more effectiveness and creativity in both the academic and social sectors. Musical composition requires formulation and understanding Emotional content and message Musicians.

Often have higher rates of executive function, It is a series of interrelated tasks, Includes planning strategy and attention to detail. It requires the simultaneous analysis of the cognitive and emotional side. This ability also has an effect on how memory systems function And memory functions of musicians are well developed In terms of composing, sorting and retrieving memories more quickly and effectively, Studies have found that musicians use their very connected brains To give each memory a different character, Such As a fictional tag, an emotional tag, an audio tag and a contextual one, More like a good search engine. So how did we know that these benefits come exclusively from music? Why don’t we say sports or painting, Or maybe those who have entered the world of music?

Were they smart from the start? Neuroscientists have researched these issues and so far they have discovered that Technical and aesthetic aspects of learning to play an instrument. It differs from any other loop, including the remaining arts. Several randomized studies were conducted for the participants, Those who showed similar rates of cognitive function and neurological processing at the onset, And I found that those who studied music for a certain period. They showed improvement in multiple areas of the brain compared to others, The backward search for the mental benefits of playing music.

It improves our understanding of mental function, Revealing inner rhythms and complex interactions, Who compose the amazing orchestra of our brains.
