How playing music benefits your brain

This is a great video which explains, with simple animation, what happens in our brains when we listen to and play music.

We’re shown how neuroscientists have found that, out of all activities, including those in the arts, playing music is superior when it comes to exercising the cognitive functions of the brain. And that this makes musicians more easily able to negotiate all of life’s challenges in a more holistically intelligent way.
