From established musicians to musically untrained children, music seems to have a universal, automatic impact on the movement of the human body. Sensing a beat in rhythm may compel some individuals to move. Through neuroimaging techniques and investigation of neurological patient groups, researchers have discovered that several movement areas of the brain respond to rhythms, whether regular, musical rhythms or irregular rhythms. In addition, a specific response to rhythms with a beat is… CONTINUE READING
