London: Researchers who have seen structural changes within the brains of professional tuners have revealed that tuning a piano also tunes the brain.Listening to two notes played simultaneously to get them pitch perfect seems to cause the brain to adapt.Brain scans revealed highly specific changes in the hippocampus, which governs memory and navigation. These correlated with the number of years that tuners had been doing this job.For the study, the Wellcome Trust researchers at University College London and Newcastle University used magnetic resonance imaging to compare the brains of 19 professional piano tuners and 19 other people.
