Gosh   –    So much material     –     I found this PDF report on educause.edu.

It is titled:  How the Brain Pays Attention

It was created by:  The McGovern Institute for Brain Research

Here is an excerpt from the conclusion (I added color to some text for emphasis)

“In addition to medical applications, our understanding of the brain’s workings is also influencing our thinking about how we educate our children. For example, if brain functioning depends upon neurons that essentially sing to one another in different frequency ranges, then how might experience with music affect the brain’s ability to process information? We have begun new experiments at the McGovern Institute involving children and musical training that build on what we now know about the brain’s temporal synchrony. It may be that there’s a symphony inside our brains, and it will take a symphony to lead us to understanding it.”
