The paper "Insula-based networks in professional musicians: Evidence for increased functional connectivity during resting state fMRI" investigates the effects of musical training on intrinsic insula-based connectivity in professional classical musicians relative to nonmusicians using resting-state functional MRI. 

It is concluded that the training and performance of music can lead to profound neuroplastic changes in insula-based networks involved in bottom–up and top–down processing of multisensory and motor signals.
