Summary expansion
  • The demand for math and science skills in our technology-driven world is at a premium, and yet U.S. students continue to lag behind many other industrialized countries in these areas. This book, based on studies conducted on 8000 elementary school-aged children, proposes that not only is there a relationship between music and math comprehension, but that music can be utilized to heighten higher brain function and improve math skills. The enclosed CD-Rom includes (1) a recording of Allegro con spirito fromSonata for Two Pianos in D Major (K. 448), by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed by Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, courtesy of Sony ClassicalTM, and (2) a descriptive interactive version of S.T.A.R.TM (Spatial-Temporal Animation Reasoning) software program. While this book's discussion of the breakthroughs in understanding of spatial-temporal reasoning abilities will be of particular interest to neuroscientists and cognitive researchers, the book is also accessible to parents and educators.* Presents the theory that music exercises higher brain function and can enhance math comprehension* Details how music training coupled with special-temporal reasoning (thinking in pictures) can dramatically impact a child's ability to understand and master math* Includes an interactive CD-ROM with math games

Higher brain function : music, mathematics, chess. History, anecdotes, correlations, and interviews ; Spatial-temporal and language-analytic reasoning in learning math and science ; Music enhances spatial-temporal reasoning ; Implications : scientific, educational, clinical -- Structured brain and symmetry. Symmetry as a common theme ; Introduction to the brain : basic brain features and brain imaging ; Mountcastle theory of mammalian cortex : internal neural language of higher brain function ; Trion model and symmetries ; Trion music : reasoning and creativity ; Trion model of higher brain function : prediction that music enhances spatial-temporal reasoning -- Tests of predictions in human behavior. Highly accurate mental rehearsals : correlation with top performance in sports ; Listening to Mozart Sonata (K.448) enhances spatial-temporal reasoning : the "Mozart effect" ; Music training enhances spatial-temporal reasoning in preschool children ; Music training plus spatial-temporal training equals improved math -- Tests from brain imaging and animal studies. EEG and fMRI studies of Mozart effect ; Symmetry in primate higher brain function ; Musical structure of the internal neural language of the brain : using music as the Rosetta stone to help decode this internal language ; Animal behavior while listening to music and doing higher brain functions -- The future of music as a window into higher brain function. Child brain development and adult brain reorganization ; Education : music training plus spatial-temporal training improves math ; Clinical implications ; The spatial-temporal thinking machine ; Thoughts -- New scientific and educational results. Science updates and breakthroughs ; Revolution in math education
