Researchers from the University of Zurich have found an interesting way to raise anyoneâ€™s IQ at any age. How? By learning to play a musical instrument!
The study found that playing music can raise an IQ by seven or more points. The work supports the increasing body of work examining ways in which the brain continues to flex, grow and change over a lifetime, as opposed to the static state that was the previous assumption, particularly after a certain age (65).
