“…music performance may modulate the biological pathways that are otherwise essential for the proper maintenance of structure, function and survival of neurons.”

The up-regulation of several motor behavior-related genes may elucidate the molecular pathways that mediate the execution of fine motor skills such as timing, sequencing, and spatial organization of movement, which are essential for playing and performing music.  Read More »

“…modulation of genes related to calcium ion homeostasis, iron ion homeostasis, glutathione metabolism, and several neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases implied that music performance may affect the biological pathways that are otherwise essential for the proper maintenance of neuronal function and survival.”

“Playing music enhanced the activity of genes involved in dopaminergic neurotransmission, motor function, learning and memory. “

“People who regularly smoke large amounts of cannabis have reduced bone density and are more prone to fractures, research has found.”

So ther!: “People who play video games for even a small amount of time have superior perception and attention skills to those who don’t play at all”
