How Playing an Instrument Benefits Your Brain

This TED video has showed the full story on the incredible brain workout playing music provides.

With the technologies developed in the last decade or so allowing us to witness brain activity as its happening, scientists are able to observe and study the parts of our brain that “light up” during certain activities and experiences. A healthy brain will have lots of activity in the areas of the brain needed for any given process as it forms and exercises connections. In musicians, brain activity explodes while playing their instrument of choice, working through an astonishing number of areas of the brain at lightning fast speeds.
