'Cross-sectional' at what level of development?

Interesting. But is there any evidence concerning whether this is true
before or after there is a differentiation between 'musicians' and
'non-musicians'? Or an interaction with age (as another poster points
out)?

Still, even if it might be 'just' developmental and not 'genetic', it is
fascinating that they can correlate this stuff at all. Do you think this
Helige needs anyone to do phone interviews or something? I needs the
cash...
