 Some research suggests that music stimulation can enhance attentional function more effectively than visual stimulation; however the mechanisms of the effects remain unexplored. We analyzed the activation of the frontal lobe in near infrared spectroscopy with healthy subjects during music activity, and evaluated the effect of music on attention deficit training. Attention control training (ACT) and dual task (DT) which determined which music activities were applied. Results showed no significant tendencies in activation of the frontal lobe during ACT; however, there were significant tendencies in activation of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in DT. Activation of DLPFC is considered to be associated with executive functions. Although some ingenuity is necessary to apply these techniques, the results indicate that the music application could be used for attention training, which activates DLPEC.
