This video explains what happens in the brain of people who play musical instruments versus those who don't.

One more reason why music programs in schools are so important.

Don't play any instruments yet? It's never to late to learn.

Thanks for putting these all together - they should be compulsory viewing by everyone on the planet. Imagine the global benefits if heeded.

The last article (link to CNN) was particularly enlightening.

My Dad is in cognitive decline, and I've observed positive effects when he listens and sings music (he was a trained singer).
