A Comparative Study of Music on The Development of Human Brain Functions in China and Foreign Countries

Main Article Content



The human brain, as the commander of the human body, is the most complex organ in terms of structure and function, and its plasticity has become a focal point of interest for scholars in China and abroad in recent years. In the past, there was a misconception that the brain network could only change during the critical period of development, and that the number of nerve cells would only decrease in adulthood. However, over the past few decades, Chinese and foreign scientists and scholars have continued to support the idea that the human brain is plastic, and in particular, studies have shown that music can have an impact on brain structure and function. This paper summarizes the literature on music as an example and analyses the effects of music on human brain function, with a view to providing references for more in-depth studies in the future.
