Music listening is among of people’s hobbies. Music listening enhances or changes certain neural circuits, including the density of dendritic connections in the primary auditory cortex. The Harvard neuroscientist Gottfried Schlaug has shown that the front portion of the corpus callosum the mass of fibers connecting the two cerebral hemispheres is significantly larger in musicians than non-musicians, and particularly for musicians who began their training early. This reinforces the notion that musical operations become bilateral with increased training, as musicians coordinate and recruit neural structures in both the left and right hemispheres. Several studies have found microstructural changes in the cerebellum after the acquisition of motor skills, such as are acquired by musicians, including
