Musical Training May Improve Your Ability to Focus
A recent study from the Center for Advanced Research in Education at the University of Chile in Santiago finds that musical training may boost the ability to focus and avoid distractions.
For the study, the scientists asked 18 professionals musicians and 18 nonmusical people to pass a standard attentional network test. The researchers also measured the participants’ relative behavior by measuring how long it took for them to react to the image changes.
The results of the tests showed that people who were trained to be professional musicians on average were able to more quickly and accurately respond to and focus on performing the task.
Study co-author David Medina comments the received results: “Our findings of the relationship between musical training and improvement of attentional skills could be useful in clinical or educational fields.”
