Medical: Music training and the brain

There is an interesting article in Medical News Today, which looks at new research, "that shows that the special training of music conductors seems to enhance the way their senses work together".

How does music training affect the brain, reports that,"the researchers' goal was to scientifically examine whether music conductors' intensive training gives them special skills at locating sounds. For example, conductors must be very adept at not only identifying errors, but also in precisely identifying the errant sound both in time and space".
