In a music-training study, evidence was found to distinguish the parts of the brain that accounted for individual talent from the parts that were activated through training. Lead author Dr. Robert Zatorre said that predisposition played an important role for auditory-motor learning that could be clearly distinguished from training-induced plasticity.

He added that their findings pertain to the debate about the relative influence of nature or nurture, but also have potential practical relevance for medicine and education. The researchers claim that their research can help to create custom-made interventions for students and for neurological patients based on their predisposition and needs.

The research is published in the journal Cerebral Cortex.
