Brain Structure Changes When Learning with Music

  Researchers at the University of Edinburgh found that people that practiced a movement task with the left hand to music showed a significant increase in structural connectivity in the white matter tracks that link auditory and motor regions on the right side of the brain.
  Future studies will look to apply this finding to motor rehabilitation programs such as after a stroke.
