Description

We examined the hypothesis that neural plasticity following preadolescent musical training improves spatial listening and temporal processing. Two groups of children with (>2 years) and without (< 6 months) significant musical training were assessed on binaural processing, spatial memory, and gap detection. Results demonstrated the musician group had an advantage in spatial listening and auditory memory. These findings suggest an early emergence of listening benefits and also support musical training as a rehabilitative strategy to ameliorate specific auditory processing deficits.
