Researchers have shown that music can stimulate the fetal brain, laying down long-term neural traces and influencing brain development.
Studies suggest that musical interventions in early life can generate cross-domain enhancements that may promote learning.

Neuroscientists have long been interested in understanding this uniquely human process of language acquisition. When does language learning begin and when does a person become bound to their unique language? Researchers have discovered that this …
