The musician's brain as a model of neuroplasticity
Here, this work focuses on the functional and anatomical differences that have been detected in musicians by modern neuroimaging methods.

Pianists showed stronger activations within a fronto-parieto-temporal network while observing piano playing compared to controls and contrasted to perception of serial fingerthumb opposition movements, which indicates specialization of multimodal auditory sensorimotor systems within aFronto-Parieta-tem temporal network by professional musical training.
Mapping perception to action in piano practice: a longitudinal DC-EEG study
It is concluded that musical training triggers instant plasticity in the cortex, and that right-hemispheric anterior areas provide an audio-motor interface for the mental representation of the keyboard.
TEMPORAL INFORMATION PROCESSING IN MUSICIANS AND NONMUSICIANS
THE P RESENT S TUDY WAS D ESIGNED to examine the general notion that temporal information processing is more accurate in musicians than in nonmusicians. For this purpose, 36 academically trained…
Emotions over time: synchronicity and development of subjective, physiological, and facial affective reactions to music.
Measurement of skin conductance, facial muscle activity, and self-monitoring were synchronized with musical stimuli and threw a new light on the astonishing complexity of affective music listening.
Alteration of digital representations in somatosensory cortex in focal hand dystonia
FOCAL hand dystonia involves a loss of motor control of one or more digits; it is associated with the repetitive, synchronous movements of the digits made by musicians over periods of many years.…
Hits to the left, flops to the right: different emotions during listening to music are reflected in cortical lateralisation patterns
Detecting wrong notes in advance: neuronal correlates of error monitoring in pianists.
It is found that around 70 ms prior to errors a negative component is elicited in the event-related potentials and is generated by the anterior cingulate cortex, Interestingly, this component was independent of the auditory feedback.
