The Montreal Gazette and Le Devoir discuss a study conducted by Virginia Penhune, a professor in the Department of Psychology and CRDH researcher, in collaboration with Robert Zatorre, a cognitive neuroscientist at McGill and the Montreal Neurological Institute. The study suggests that musical training before age 7 has a significant effect on the development of the brain, an effect substantial enough to be seen on a brain scan.
