Seeing the Brain Through the Eyes of an Artist: Elizabeth Jameson
OCTOBER 11, 2016
There is mounting evidence that performance arts enhance brain development at any age. A recent study found that dancers and musicians share very similar brains – they have more connections between different regions of the brain than the average non-artist. Over time, tasking the brain to create music or art requires the use of a large percentage of the brain, so these areas develop thicker interconnections, which enhances brain processing power and creativity.
