  • To keep a beat, our brains have to get the auditory and motor cortices to first synchronise and then maintain that synchronisation as small things change in the music. To maintain a rhythm, our brains need to do all of that plus constantly monitor how the rhythm is fitting into the beat. It looks easy, […]

  • Here is a fascinating new theoretical paper about the relationship between rhythm and language abilities. A theoretical study is one that brings together all the relevant current research and puts forward a theory of, in this case, how two concepts may be connected. In the diagram below you will see the researchers have put forward […]

  • Music is food for the brain and, consequently, the food of neuroscience. Studying how the brain processes music and how music changes the brain has fascinated neuroscientists for almost 30 years. But these two types of studies, how the brain processes music and how music changes the brain, are also very difficult. “The problem is […]

  • While we often bring you great research on the many skills and benefits music learning can provide, there is another very important part to the neuromusical research field – enhancing our understanding of various learning disorders and delays. In this excerpt from a brilliant conceptual paper, the study of musician’s brain structures and functions acts […]

  • The connections between music learning and learning difficulties such as ADHD, as well as the research around these areas is a highly requested topic at BBB. We are always looking for ways to enhance your knowledge of the topics you are most interested in, so we are excited to announce the release of our ‘Music […]

  • For quite some time, researchers have been trying to understand the brain mechanisms that result in the condition known as dyslexia. For scientists, it is a fascinating condition because it can present in a variety of ways, and the issues seem to arise from a number of different neural processes. It is a complex puzzle, […]

  • What is a neural biomarker? Neural Biomarkers are molecules that indicate the presence of a disease or dysfunction. You could think of them like traffic black spots, meaning junctions or parts of the road which seem to have more accidents, or cause more bottlenecks or problems. Researchers are using biomarkers more frequently to build a […]

  • We are sharing this again as we have recently had people asking for an updated post focusing on more scientific aspects of the study. Connectivity is an interesting thing. In society, we continually look for connectivity, whether it be with people, places or ideas. Sometimes, that connectivity is very strong, other times it is very […]

  • Communication is a way of creating connection, but it seems that possibly for autistic children, connection is a way of improving communication. In this study at the University of Montreal, 51 children with ASD ages 6 to 12 were randomly assigned to participate in a clinical trial involving three months of either a music-based, or […]
