Musical Brain Better at Language?

Music Training Boosts Sensitivity to Pitch and May Help Language Learning WebMD 3/14/07 "Music lessons may train the brain in ways that make learning language easier. So say Northwestern University researchers including Patrick Wong, PhD, and Nina Kraus, PhD...researchers graphed the brain waves in participants' brain stems as the various pitches played. They found that the brain stems of musicians were more sensitive to the pitch variations than those of the nonmusicians...musically-trained subjects were far better at tracking the three different tones than the nonmusicians...Playing music involves a different part of the brain, but it appears to tune the brain stem...may partly explain musicians' skill at learning language"
