  • If you are a musician, then you really do hear the world differently! This study looked at expectation and prediction, and if musical training had any influence on the differences we hear. As a test, the researchers looked at melodies that didn’t finish in an expected or satisfying way. The researchers wondered if music training […]

  • Why do we prefer different types of music? Why isn’t there just one type of music that everyone likes? The answer may be that we only get connected with our true selves, the part of our brain that is full of our thoughts, through music that we choose for ourselves. “The listeners’ preferences, not the […]

  • Listening or playing music is often used by teenagers to assist in their study or to celebrate afterwards. But does it help them perform better in the exam itself? This study found that stressful situations can be alleviated by music and other activities in preparation for a stressful event. It also found that listening to […]

  • Do you have similar musical tastes to your friends? How about your work colleagues? Do you think musical tastes tell us anything else about a person?

  • “Adults who engage in synchronous movement to music later report liking each other better, remembering more about each other, trusting each other more, and are more likely to cooperate with each other compared to adults who engage in asynchronous movements.” This could be why music festivals seem to be going from strength to strength, we […]

  • This is a fascinating idea – how do we fall in love with music? And as we age, why do we like music less? This article explains the biological concept very well. “We know that musical tastes begin to crystallize as early as age 13 or 14. By the time we’re in our early 20s, […]

  • Here is one of those research sentences that are so useful when we are explaining how music learning impacts on every child’s development. “The results suggest that systematic extracurricular programs, particularly music-based training, may accelerate the development of inhibitory control and related brain networks earlier in childhood.” This research paper is reporting on the progress […]

  • Imagine a music therapist and their patient wearing EEG caps. Imagine them working together and coming to a moment when the therapy was “working”. Imagine seeing the EEG signal suddenly change for the patient, and then seeing the same change in the therapist just afterwards.
