Music and brain

General description

Making music and listening to music is one oft the most complex human activities. In the brain, sensory-motor networks, auditory regions, visual perception, and emotions are involved. It is known since two decades, that musician’s brain differ from non-musician’s. Music induced neuroplasticity leads to more efficient networking in the brain, to optimized perceptive and executive functions, even to enlargements of certain brain regions involved in the respective tasks.

Our aim is to understand the rules of neuroplasticity and to investigate, how we can positively influence sensory-motor training processes in healthy musicians. Furthermore we want to exploit the potential of music induced neuroplasticity in neurorehabilitation.
