Music better than Coding for kids brain development; a top study-

Font Size :

Most parents want their children to be intelligent and successful. 

Though some experts have pushed parents to teach their children coding, new research is pointing to music as the gateway to smarter kids.

While coding does allow for a great advantage when it comes to technology, it lacks many benefits that music provides. 

The argument to teach children coding is that it helps them with their math and language skills. 

However, recent research carried out by MIT and published in the Journal of Neuroscience is now showing how music can be powerful on a child’s brain development.

According to the authors of the study, learning music during our early life makes the brain more connected, which in turn, makes their brains neurologically capable of many things, not just music.

“This study, among other studies, demonstrates how the human brain is shaped by experience,” explains co-author Lutz Jäncke to Inverse.

They found in their study that musical brains produce more structural and functional connections when compared to those who don’t learn music.

To carry out their study, the researchers had 103 professional musicians and 50 non-musicians go in for brain scans. Once the scans were taken, they were compared. What they found, was that the musicians all have “strikingly similar networks.’

Additionally, musicians had far more structural and functional connections than non-musicians, especially in the areas that were connected to speech and sound.

Another factor that played a major role was how early the musicians had begun learning music. “The earlier the musicians had started with musical practice, the stronger these connectivities,” Jäncke says.

Their takeaway was that early music training could help children to develop stronger neural pathways and, in turn, make them smarter.
