Music and Brain
Research
“Exploring the neurobiology of
music, researchers discovered direct
evidence that music stimulates
specific regions of the brain
responsible for memory, motor
control, timing and language.” Seattle
Times Nov.. 9, 1998 writing about research conducted by neuroscientist,
Anne Blood, McGill University, Montreal
“We find that harmony, melody and
rhythm had distinct patterns of
brain activity. They involved both
the right and left sides of the brain.”
Lawrence Parsons, University of Texas
Movement
“Repetitive movement also
enhances myelination of the
axons, long neural fibers that
transmit messages from the
neural cell body to the synaptic
gap at the end of the dendrites.
Myelin insulates the axon fiber,
much as the copper wire in an
electrical cord is insulated. The
insulation protects/enhances the
brain’s ability to more efficiently
transmit messages.” “Why is Attention
Deficit Disorder so prevalent in the U.S.?” Jeanette
Farmer, C.G.
& Myelination& Myelination
Movement
“More importantly, sufficiently developed
myelinated neural networks are protected from
a chemical housecleaning which nature releases
around the age of eleven. This action dissolves
all undeveloped neural fields leaving the
brain with the weight it had at 18 months. Only
sufficiently developed neural networks become
permanent ‘structures of knowledge.” Jeanette Farmer,
C.G. “Why is Attention Deficit Disorder So prevalent in the US?” pg. 4
Depth — It is the repetitive movement of the limbs and
organs of the body that provide the exercise needed to assist the
myelination of the axons in the brain. Extensive use of
technological tools at an early age, no matter how alluring, may
actually limit the development of these organs, thereby,
diminishing future intellectual potential.
““Learning is experience. EverythingLearning is experience. Everything
else is just information.”else is just information.” — Albert Einstein— Albert Einstein
