Comment on Listening to Music (Below)

This study does not surprise me.  Cognitive scientists have discovered that working memory has limited attention, probably only four slots.  Because of this, one must focus his or her limited attention on the task at hand.  Anything that distracts from the task affects learning and effectiveness.  I guess it's time we send multi-tasking to the junk heap, just like we did learning styles.
