While you play the piano, many things are happening in your brain. Millions of signals are firing all throughout the brain, new connections between neurons are being created and others are being lost! Your brain is the director as well as the audience of this show spectacular show.
A picture is worth more than a thousand words, and a video….well, I’m pretty sure its worth a couple extra thousand more than a picture. The following video is a 15 seconds glimpse at the activity of the brain while listening to music.
Curious things according to research:
- The right side of the brain will be more active when playing
- Your brain is engaged COMPLETELY! This can be good or it can be bad. Sometimes bad if you are driving
- Your Brain will try to fill in the gaps as it listens to music. Have you ever wondered why you can listen to someone talking in a loud party with music? It’s the same thing.
Hope you have enjoyed this small taste of what happens inside the brain while listening or playing music.
