A developmental study of the effect of music training on timed movements
When people clap to music, sing, play a musical instrument, or dance, they engage in temporal entrainment. We examined the effect of music training on the precision of temporal entrainment in 57 children aged 10–14 years (31 musicians, 26 non-musicians). Performance was examined for two tasks: self-paced finger tapping (discrete movements) and circle drawing (continuous movements). For each task, participants synchronized their movements with a steady pacing signal and then continued the movement at the same rate in the absence of the pacing signal. Analysis of movements during the continuation phase revealed that musicians were more accurate than non-musicians at finger tapping and, to a lesser extent, circle drawing. Performance on the finger-tapping task was positively associated with the number of years of formal music training, whereas performance on the circle-drawing task was positively associated with the age of participants. These results indicate that music training and maturation of the motor system reinforce distinct skills of timed movement.

I am thankful for the difficult people in my life. They have shown me exactly who I don’t want to be.

Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

— Alan Cohen (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

  • Sam Pepper: It was a social experiment guys
  • Every psychology student: Where was the control over extraneous and participant variables? What were you even experimenting? Social experiments are supposed to be ethical, yet as far as I'm concerned there was no consent from the participants, you didn't brief them, you caused discomfort. In conclusion, this was unethical as fuck, don't tell us we don't have a reason to be mad, fuck you, goodbye.
