A study from Mexico explores how musical training might be helpful in helping kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

23 healthy children underwent special MRI scans, then took music lessons for 9 months.

Afterward, new MRI scans showed changes in the brain in the form of increased fiber connections.

Prior research has linked ADHD and autism to a certain degree to decreased of those connections.
