    Athletes are better at tuning out background brain noise

    A new study suggests that athletes are better at processing external sounds due to a stronger ability to reduce the background noise in their brains.

    People who play sports appear to have an enhanced ability to process sounds from their environment, according to new research.

    Scientists at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, measured brain activity relating to sound processing in athletes and nonathletes.

    They found that due to a stronger ability to lessen the background electrical noise in their brains, the athletes were better at processing signals from external sounds.

    The team reports the findings in a recent paper in the journal Sports Health: A Multidisciplinary Approach.

    "No one would argue against the fact that sports lead to better physical fitness, but we don't always think of brain fitness and sports," says senior study author Nina Kraus, a professor of communication sciences and neurobiology at Northwestern University and director of its Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory.

    "We're saying," she continues, "that playing sports can tune the brain to better understand one's sensory environment."
