What a Brain Health Expert has to say about the BigPiano™:

“I love this - it's brilliant and on so many levels it's the perfect brain/body workout. Love the way the participants would be challenging their motor and visual spatial memory to learn new patterns, their motor pathways to execute and hone a new skill, their cerebellum - a brain center for coordination, balance and rhythm, and the auditory cortex as well as other brain areas that process music. To top it all off, because it's fun and social, dopamine, a feel good neurotransmitter which primes the brain for learning along with BDNF and other growth factors are released which strengthen synapses and promote the birth of new neurons. And I didn’t even mention the body benefits!”
