How Music Affects the Brain and How You Can Use It to Your Advantage
It's interesting, because I'm never NOT listening to music. I've been officially diagnosed with ADHD Combined-type and it helps me actually sit still and concentrate when I need to things like homework or type a paper up. It takes just enough of my brain power to listen, and it calms what's leftover down enough for me to actually get what I'm doing, well, done. For me, it's not just exercising or trying to boost my immune system. For me, it's become a part of who I am, I'm never without it and it makes it easier for me to cope with severe distraction that I can't handle without it. Maybe the way I respond to music is similar to the way the Alzheimer's patients responded.
