GUEST,daylia Music and the Brain (33) RE: Music and the Brain 13 Dec 02


thanks for your most interesting post, GUEST! It reminds me of a study conducted at McGill University a few years ago where they compared the brain activity of students doing a variety of tasks. They discovered that more parts of the brain were engaged while people were reading and playing music (simultaneously) than for any other task investigated.

Guess that's why musicians are such a brilliant lot!

One question though. If being 'wired' to appreciate music was not "necessary for human survival", then why do we have it? We are the only species on earth that makes music, and there must be a reason for that. 'Mother Nature' is most efficient, biologically speaking, so why would we be given an ability we don't need?

Hey reggie - :-) :-) :-)!!!
