From cognition to action
This chapter discusses recent studies exploring the relationship between general cognitions and musical skills in musicians and non-musicians. It shows that there are intimate links between musical ability and various cognitions including perception, sight-reading, memory, action planning and organizing, attention, and visuospatial functions. It also discusses whether music might have an impact on the development of intellectual functions.
