How playing an instrument benefits your brain

I posted this earlier, but buried in another topic. It deserves its very own heading.

Very interesting. I have an autistic son who has been receiving music therapy for the last two years. We are seeing significant cognitive and language improvements. Thanks for posting the video.

Very interesting and a huge incentive to keep practicing and learning
to play a new instrument.

This is something that I have thought for a long time. Don't know exactly why, maybe it's because I'm a musician. Anyway - I have used music in my work with the Cub Scouts and get great responses from boys who are austistic as well as a boy who has down syndrom. They just seem to respond better to music stimulus than to other activities.
