Difficult grammar affects music experience.
Reading and listening to music at the same time affects how you hear the music. Language scientists and neuroscientists from Radboud University and the Max Planck […]
Long known that those listening to music via ear buds etc are unaware of activity going on around them, all focus is on the music. So fr reading to be unaffected when listening to music would be surprising.
Reading and concentrating on that would allocate music to a background noise status.
Apparently the fact that we are a single tasking species and this has been proven over and over so why should be be surprised by this finding, it’s just another confirmation of single tasking.
