Interesting that they couldn't use wind instruments presumably because of the magnetic metal parts.

That's fascinating stuff.

One thing bothers me a little, though.

Margulis’ study, which was conducted at Northwestern University, attempted to answer what has been, up to now, a chicken-and-egg question. “There are lots of studies showing that musicians’ brains have different networks than those of people who haven’t had formal musical training,” she noted. “But is this due to a genetic predisposition or to the effect of practicing an instrument for so long?”

What I'd like to know is whether there's a scintilla of evidence that it can't be both.

Or is that too complicated for musicians branching out into science :Wink:

Actually, like with most things nature/nurture, the answer is that it would be strange if it wasn't both.

Have I mentioned this book (http://www.amazon.com/This-Your-Brain-Music-Obsession/dp/0452288525/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1306364200&sr=1-1) in the recent past?

I've just had this.. incredible feeling of.. déjà vu..
