Music is a wonderful form of art. There isn’t really any other way of transmitting information that can possibly overcome all barriers: language, age, nationality, etc., like the sounds of music, does. I mean, we see people from non-eastern regions jamming Phyno’s songs like they understand every word, and we see old people dancing Shaku Shaku better than the young ones.
After many years of study and research, scientists believe that music is not just another form of art, it also affects our mind and body. Below are 3 highlights that prove that music is good for your overall health.
Music helps make one smarter
Studies show that music activates many parts of the brain that are most times inactive. It also helps activate the parts of the brain that enables you to memorize things, so listening to music while reading can greatly increase your retentive memory. Music also allows you to restore the function of the brain in cases of craniocerebral trauma.
On musicians, especially those who started playing in their childhood, music affects even more. So, one of the studies on this topic showed that the study of music contributes to the sustainable development of non-verbal thinking. The musician’s brain has a large number of connections between the hemispheres.
