Rauscher, Frances H.
Bulletin of the Council for Research in Music Education, n142 p35-47 Fall 1999
Presents research on the effects of music instruction on spatial-temporal reasoning in children. Summarizes past studies that tested whether music training transfers to spatial-temporal task performance. A work-in-progress focuses on whether music training can improve economically-disadvantaged preschoolers' abstract reasoning and why spatial-temporal tasks improve after music training. (CMK)
