I bet that, for many people, it'll be the area of the brain that people use when they are lost in a forest and are desperately trying to find a way outbkidd wrote:Fun. When do we put djembefolas in an MRI scanner and see what areas of the brain become active when soloing versus playing an accompaniment?
Thank you so much for this. Every single link was so fascinating...djembeweaver wrote:Your brain on jazz: Some more up-to-date research, this time on improvisation. This guy (Charles Limb) is doing interesting research on the neuroscience of improvisation.
Almost certainly...otherwise we wouldn't be motivated to do it.I would be curious to know if there is a significant difference in brain chemicals released during the experiment. For instance, I'd bet that improvising releases more endorphins and serotonin (the body's natural pleasure chemical) during improvisation than reciting memorized material
