A study done in Japan found that toe-tapping, songs that you love are good for your brain! Specifically your pre-frontal cortex, the part that is related to your short-term memory, planning, self-control, and abstract thinking. The one catch is that it only works for songs that you know and love. A song that you’ve never heard won’t have this positive effect. So, put on your favorite your favorite song, and play it twice! It’s so nice!
