Music is far better for your brain than sports. Music opens nerve connections and makes you better equipped to solve problems, reports Finnish public service broadcaster YLE. Music editor and science reporter Minna Lindgren says her research isn’t meant to be a provocation, but simply a statement of fact.


Most people are introduced to music in school, unfortunately schools spend far more time on sports and physical education and leave the music to simply teaching children the flute.


The talk “Music is better for your health than sports,” is based on neurological research.


In two Finnish cities they’ve looked at what happens to the brain when people play an instrument or sing. Over the last 15 to 20 years they’ve drawn the conclusion that music has had a far bigger impact on health than sports. Unlike language, sense and sight that only active a part of the brain, music activate the whole brain.


– Scientists don’t know why, but they’ve been able to show it does.


This means that radio, possibly for the first time, can claim a health benefit in listening to them. However, classical music have a far better effect on the brain than popular music.
