Re: artists' brains are different

Participants' brain scans revealed that artists had increased neural matter in areas relating to fine motor movements and visual imagery.
It falls into line with evidence that focus of expertise really does change the brain. The brain is incredibly flexible in response to training and there are huge individual differences that we are only beginning to tap into.
I'm surprised that this is news. I thought that was long since known. Heck, I knew it from somewhere. Of course artists have increased neural matter in these areas because that is what they do repeatedly.
