Music & Aging Brains

I have a vague memory of reading a number of articles about the positive cognitive impact of music – listening and playing – on the brain. I'll try to dig them out and post them in the future.
Here’s a link to the article: http://health.usnews.com/health-news/news/articles/2012/08/02/musicians-brains-might-have-an-edge-on-aging
