Belgium 's Leuven University scientists said that his team has examined the brain 21 students explore the science of art . Then compare it to the brain nonseniman 23 students .
This study uses a scanning method called voxel - based morphometry . The result is an art student has more nerve elements in areas that control fine motor movements and visual imagery in their brain .
"People who are able to draw or paint well , seems to really have a structure that is more developed in some parts of their brains . Especially in areas that control memory performance procedural or fine motor skills , " he explained .
