The effect of music on memory

As a result of research at the University of Hong Kong, the scientists came to the conclusion that getting a musical education is of great help in helping children develop linguistic skills and memory. Moreover, as a healthy blog notes, it helps adults fill up memory gaps after brain injuries. Children who play musical instruments have a richer vocabulary, unlike those who can not play any. Moreover, the amount of memorized words directly depends on the time spent on training.

Ninety schoolchildren between the ages of six and fifteen were involved in the study. Half of them studied playing the musical instruments in a brass band, and the second half did not do anything. The period ranged from one to five years. After that, all the children passed the test of their ability to memorize words. First they read the proposed list of words, and after ten, and then thirty minutes later, using the visual series associated with the words, they tried to remember them. Moreover, the experiment was repeated three times with each child. According to the results, students who have the skills to play at least one musical instrument were able to reproduce more words than children without a musical education. And the longer they studied, the more words they memorized.

It was also noted that children perceive the choir very well, this genre of music is well accepted by all generations of people, since choral singing is a melody that penetrates the heart.

This dependence is associated with the fact that the study of music develops the left temporal lobe located in the brain, which is responsible for auditory memory, which in turn develops the part of the left temporal lobe, which is responsible for oral memory.

Scientists suggest that the discovered "side effect" of learning to play musical instruments can stimulate the development of the study of music as a new type of physiotherapy for people who have lost their memory as a result of a brain injury.

And also, this is a wonderful occasion for parents to give their children to receive music education from early childhood. This study confirmed an earlier experiment conducted in 1998 in which sixty students at Hong Kong University were tested for memory quality. Half of the girls had a musical education, the training period of which lasted at least six years, and the second half did not have it at all. On average, sixteen percent had the best memory in a group that knew how to play musical instruments.
