Washington: Musicians who learn a new melody demonstrate enhanced skills after a night`s sleep, according to a new study. Researchers from the Southern Methodist University, Dallas found that performance of a musical task improved among pianists whose practice of a new melody was followed by a night of sleep.However, that when two similar melodies were practiced one after the other, followed by sleep, any gains in speed and accuracy achieved during practice diminished overnight, said Sarah E Allen, an assistant professor of music education in SMU`s Meadows School of the Arts."The goal is to understand how the brain decides what to keep, what to discard, what to enhance, because our brains are receiving such a rich data stream and we don`t have room for everything," Allen said.
