Brain responds differently in musicians
Are you a musician or not? Well, your brain responses might just tell.

Researchers at the University of Jyväskylä and Aarhus University have discovered that listening to music might trigger different responses in musicians and non-musicians. Using machine learning and computational music analysis on fMRI data, researchers were able to predict with 77% accuracy these two sets of individuals. The brain regions which predicted most accurately this distinction were frontal cortex, temporal cortex, cingulate gyrus and caudate nucleus which are usually associated with engagement and attention. This shows that music training alters our neural responses significantly.
