Music in itself sounding in the head. Is that familiar?
Probably this happens with everyone, which is already there. Some “Praskovya girl” will get attached, spin, spin, and stop. Another thing is when a melody begins to sound continuously and is perceived as if it comes from outside. This is a disaster.
“A song playing from time to time in your head is normal. Another thing is musical hallucinations, they become a serious problem. People cannot sleep, they cannot think,” says British psychiatrist Victor Aziz, who, along with a colleague Nick Warner recently returned the attention of scientists to the psychopathological problem of “music in the brain.”
What are these hallucinations, and what is it like to live with them – we explain with an example. Continue reading
About 40 years ago, the French otolaryngologist Alfred Tomatis made some amazing discoveries that spurred the development of the Tomatis method. This method has various names: “auditory training”, “auditory arousal” or “auditory therapy”. Its goal is to re-educate a person in the listening process, which improves the ability to learn and learn languages, sociability, increases creativity and positively affects the individual’s social behavior.
The Tomatis method has helped thousands of children suffering from auditory problems, speech disorders, attention deficit disorders (DKV), autism, as well as those suffering from motor and motor function disorders. His discoveries helped to fight depression in adults, learn foreign languages faster, overcome communication difficulties, and increase creativity and working capacity. Continue reading
Just as short-term training increases the number of neurons that respond to sound, long-term training enhances nerve cell responses and even causes physical changes in the brain. The brain reactions of professional musicians are significantly different from the reactions of non-musicians, and some areas of their brain are overdeveloped.
In 1998, Christo Pantev of the University of Münster in Germany showed that when musicians listen to the piano, they have 25% more auditory zones than musicians. Children’s research also confirms the premise that early musical experience facilitates the musical development of the brain. In 2004, Antoine Shahin, Larry E. Roberts, and Laurel J. Trainor from McMaster University in Ontario recorded brain reactions of 4-5 year old children to piano sounds, violins, and pure tones. The guys in whose houses music was constantly played showed a higher activity of the auditory areas of the brain than those that were three years older, but they listened to little music.
