  • Is it nature or nurture? Is it biological, magic or a quirk? One of the musical prodigies involved in the BRAMS study in Canada into the cognitive predispositions for musical genius explained the mixture that she believes contributed to her extraordinary musical ability. “Our success is like the three legs of a grand piano,” says […]

  • It is hard to conceptualise that our brain waves can be in sync or out of sync. Yet this concept of brain wave synchronisation is fascinating neuroscientists as they are finding that the more consistent the synchronisation, meaning the longer our brain waves can stay in sync, the more effectively we can learn. To explain […]

  • 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 […]

  • Do you use background music when you are completing a creative task? If you do, do you find that your creative output is better, more innovative or unexpected, or does the background music hinders these outputs? In this study, the researchers used four conditions, meaning four different options for background sounds. These were background music […]

  • Tinnitus is a fascinating and challenging condition to live with. Many scientists in the neuromusical field suffer from tinnitus, so they have a vested interest in studying it. The reason why it is so fascinating is that it seems to have no point of origin or malfunctioning area, it is a disease that stretches across […]

  • 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 […]

  • Can second language ability be predicted through music? Well, maybe! This study tried to shed light on the following gap in our understanding. “While musicality and working memory are mostly treated as clear predictors of foreign language learning ability, the relationship between brain morphology and language aptitude is far from obvious.” Basically, we know that […]
