Corpus Callosum connects the emotional and logical sides of the brain for better learning.

Music training can increase connections between the two brain hemispheres in children, leading to a 25% increase in the corpus callosum.

The corpus callosum is the connection between the two cerebral parts of the brain, responsible for transmitting neural messages between both the right and left hemispheres. If the two sides of the brain are disconnected, a child could struggle with learning challenges, speech and language delays, emotional grounding problems, attention and focus issues, and lack of communication. It is important to engage kids in crossing the midline activities to rewire and engage both the body and the brain for reading, writing, spelling, speech, attention and math.

The corpus callosum is used to facilitate communication between the two hemispheres of the brain, and to screen one side from the other. If too much interference occurs, it can decrease the ability of one hemisphere to specialize in its primary or preferred functions.
