Teach music, not coding!

The latest reasearch just came in!

"What actually does increase other skills and brain power is teaching kids to play a musical instrument, according to a January 2021 study conducted at the University of ZΓΌrich and published in The Journal of Neuroscience."

"...A summary of the research (which involved scanning the brains of both musicians and non-musicians) published in Inverse explains that musicians' brains were vastly more structurally and functionally connected than non-musicians, especially in areas of the brain responsible for speech and sound (especially the auditory cortices of both hemispheres). ... The musical group also showed stronger connections from the auditory cortices to other brain areas in the frontal, parietal, and temporal cortex known to be involved in the control of higher cognitive functions like memory, working memory, and executive functions."

"This increase in brain power and functionality remains even if the child does not continue to play the instrument. "The earlier the musicians had started with musical practice, the stronger these connectivities," says professor Simon Leipold, a co-author of the study.

In short, if you want your kids to be smarter, you're better off having them learn a musical instrument or take music education in school, rather than teaching them to code."
