Music Training and Semantic Clustering in College Students
Hogan, David E.; Huesman, Thomas
Journal of Genetic Psychology, v169 n4 p322-331 Dec 2008
College students with 5 or more years of music training recalled significantly more words from a 16-item word list than did students with 0-4 years of training. The superior recall of the extensively trained students linked to better application of a semantic-clustering strategy across a series of 3 test trials. Music education and language experience may have similar influences on the development of verbal memory. (Contains 3 tables.)
