Why are lyrics so easy to memorize? Professor Ian Cross Director of the center for science and music says this may be due to the structure of poetry and music. He believes that it has to due with the match and flow of the words and rhythms that leave our brain less stressed. That is how we can remember lyrics
There are many reasons that we remember lyrics. One is because of repetition, after our brains hear or read something over and over we make connection with our neutrons and remember lyrics. We also remember more when we have a rhythm or pattern to go along with words.
How is it that we remember lyrics but not our studies? When we learn something new like ( how to spell ) the neurons in our brain make strong connections and "cement" the memories. NR2A and NR2B are the two proteins important for making connections in our brains. Even if your brain is filled with lyrics there is still room for more.
The brain process music in a very special way. This topic of the article is very controversial, when music enters the brain does it process the lyric and tunes separately or together. Daniela Sammler of the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany, her and her team has found that both might be partially true with a series of test.
