Musicians show advantages in long-term memory

University of Texas at Arlington psychology researchers published and interesting research findings. They did sophisticated measurements of electrical activity of neurons in the brains of 14 musicians and 15 non-musicians. These tests proved, that musically trained people not only process linguistic materials faster than those without training, and have advantages in the working memory, but they process also non-verbal information faster.
As the researcher Dr. Heekyeong Park explained: “Our work is adding evidence that music training is a good way to improve cognitive abilities”.
