Study suggests music may someday help repair brain

SUMMARY:

Research conducted by McGill University in Montreal that suggested that scientists may one day be able to retune damaged minds by exploiting rhythm, harmony and melody. Exploring the neurobiology of music, researchers discovered direct evidence that music stimulates specific regions of the brain responsible for memory, motor control, timing and language. For the first time, researchers also located specific areas of mental activity linked to emotional responses to music.
