Default Re: Drummer's Brains are Different

Yep, You won't actually notice a difference but it is measureable in your thirties. I am in my fifities I haven't noticed any difference either except pain from arthritis. Even though cognitive functions decrease with age it apparently makes little real difference as most Nobel laureates are in their forties when they perform their major contributions and many of them are active in their eighties. I guess it is more of a use it or lose it phenomenon. I thought it interesting that researchers were interested in such phenomena as music related neurophysiology. I have always thought drummers were of a different ilk.
