Article of the Week 
Why trained musicians are better at making decisions
Kirsten Smayda of the University of Texas–Austin along with colleagues Bharath Chandrasekaran of UT–Austin and Darrell Worthy of Texas A&M, recently found that when faced with a complex decision-making task, participants who began musical training after age eight made better choices than those who started earlier, or never took lessons at all. One possible explanation," the researchers note "is that music training beginning late in childhood capitalizes on the period of significant maturation in the prefrontal cortex."
