Swedes Prove Drummers are Smarter!
People with a knack for holding a steady beat score higher on intelligence tests, a new study has shown. Researchers say the study suggests a biological basis for intelligence related to the regularity of nerve cell activity in the brain.
“We know that precision in nerve cell activity down to the millisecond is important for processing information and for processes related to learning,”Fredrik UllÃ©n of the Karolinska Institute said in a statement.
In addition, the researchers found a relationship between high intelligence, the ability to hold a rhythm, and the volume of white matter found in the frontal lobes of the subjects’ brains.
