Research on Brainwave Patterns in Harmonizing Musicians

This is a fascinating study for music lovers.  Scientists reporting in the journal BMC Neuroscience have found that when musicians harmonize, they actually have similar brain patterns.  The researchers looked at electrical activity in the brains of eight pairs of guitarists as they played.  The scientists discovered brainwave similarities within and between the musicians' brains increased as they listened to the beat of a metronome as they prepared to play and also when they actually began playing together.
