The Brain That Changes Itself
I’ve been enjoying a great book by Norman Doidge called The Brain That Changes Itself. Though not specifically focused on music, this book outlines new theory in neuroscience that indicates that our brains continue to develop throughout our lives, as opposed to some theories that assume that development ends after childhood.
A great summer read, and there are some interesting passages on the benefits of music in enhancing brain function.
