There is no end to education…The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. -Jiddu Krishnamurti
Decades ago, scientists believed that your brain development as a child determines your brain structure for life. However, neuroplasticity research has proved that even a few sessions of training can change your brain, with longer training providing better effects. Neuroplasticity or brain plasticity is its ability to change or adapt in response to experience, environment or behavior.
Taking music lessons as a child, for instance, improves brain function. It builds up the cognitive reserve, increasing resistance to brain damage in the future. Playing an instrument requires both hemispheres of the brain to work in unison with many cognitive functions. But while early music training can contribute to a brain boost later in life, you benefit no matter the age you decide to pick an instrument. Research has shown older brains can change too.
