A study by Dr Nina Kraus’s Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory at Northwestern University, showed that musicians suffer less from ageing-related memory and hearing losses than non-musicians. It is believed to be the first study to provide biological evidence that lifelong musical experience has a good impact on the ageing process. Scientific research over the years has shown that studying music has many rewards, but this new research shows that it can fine-tune the human brain, biologically and neurologically enhancing its performance and protecting it from some of the ravages of time.
