Music and Memory

The connection between music and memory is well-documented, but scientists have only recently been able to pinpoint the area in the brain that is activated by a musical trigger. According to cognitive neuroscientist Petr Janata, “[Music] calls back memories of a particular person or place, and you might all of a sudden see that person’s face in your mind’s eye.”

What does that mean for bloggers? Well, keeping track of the music you listen to while you compose a particularly tricky post can help you recall the post later. You may also notice that certain types of music help you write certain types of posts.
