I'm coming to realize that a natural side effect of playing drums is brain plasticity. Big believer in brain plasticity. It keeps your mind young and fuels creativity.
...indeed, drumming seems to be more of a mental (as opposed to physical) process in terms of the coordination required to develop timed rhythmic patterns using four limbs, not unlike the mental development required to excel in highly skilled sports/arts (such as golf, japanese kendo, chinese kung-fu/tai chi, etc.)...
