Music has powerful effects on the mind. Different styles of music can have significant effect on a person’s mood, thought pattern and emotions. The human brain has a unique feature. This feature enables our brain to make certain changes based on its use and functions. This is called neuroplasticity. Playing music can strengthen your nerve connections making your brain more efficient. Listening to music enhances the function of the frontal lobe, the area responsible for thinking and planning. It also stimulates the speech center of the brain, Broca’s area, which means music makes better communicators. Music also releases dopamine in the putamen, an area of the brain associated with rhythm and coordination. This explains
how music helps people with motor dysfunctions. Music stimulates the hippocampus, potentially creating new neurons and enhancing memory. In the hypothalamus, music changes hormone levels, leading to a relaxed heart rate and blood pressure. Therapeutical music intendeds to alleviate a physical, emotional, or mental concern. Music therapy may help the children with autism and ADHD to improve skills in areas such as communication, social skills, auditory sensory issues, behavior, cognition, perceptual/motor skills, and self-reliance or self-determination.
