Melatonin Is Elevated in Highly Gifted Musicians
by Marianne Hassler & Derek Gupta


21 creative musicians attained significantly higher melatonin values than 29 controls. Mean age of male and female subjects was 19,16 and 18,77 years, respectively. Melatonin was measured in blood serum between 08.00 and 09.00. Results were discussed in the context of differences between musicians and non-musicians reliably emerging from all testings, whether endocrinological parameters, brain activity, or neuropsychological measures were used.
