Traditional Irish Music
Check out this report, posted yesterday on the AOL Healthy Living website.
"A new study found that musicians might have brains that function better than their peers well into old age."
Well, of course we all knew that already, didn't we! ;-)
"Engaging in musical activity for most of one’s lifetime significantly helps remember names, and enhances nonverbal memory, the ability to work based on what one sees, and mental agility during old age."
Sounds good to me.
Trouble is, my memory for names is so bad, I have to stick name tags inside my clothes, so's I don't forget who I am! :-)
"This finding supports another recent study that reported people who walk regularly maintain healthier brains."
That's also good news for me, cause I love going for long walks with my dogs.
Anyway, please read the whole thing & judge for yourself.
