The Musician’s Brain
Wichian Sittiprapaporn

Musician’s brain is considered as an ideal model for plasticity studies: they start playing musical instrument usually in the early childhood and continue to improve their skills by practicing even when they have reached a professional level. Practicing to play involves accurate processing of temporal and spectral simple sounds as well as complex sounds or sound patterns. The result of long-term active and intensive music training does not affect only musical related skills and also in non-musical related skills i.e., verbal memory, mathematic and spatial ability. This review article cover music centre in the brain, musician brain in anatomical and functional aspects, enhancing of musical and non-musical related skills aspects, hypothesis of music and spatial ability and spatial mental imagery of music.
