IDEAS & TRENDS; Rhyme's Reason: Linking Thinking To Train the Brain
http://www.nytimes.com/1995/02/19/weekinreview/ideas-trends-rhyme-s-reason-linking-thinking-to-train-the-brain.html
"Henry James described a baby's world as a "blooming, buzzing confusion." But parents know better."

Comparison of rhyming and word generation with FMRI

"Functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) has been successfully used to non-invasively map language function, but has several disadvantages."

A neurocognitive perspective on rhyme awareness: The N450 rhyme effect
http://pubman.mpdl.mpg.de/pubman/item/escidoc:1541141:4/component/escidoc:1562174/Wagensveld_et_al_Brain_Res_2012.pdf
"Rhyme processing is reflected in the electrophysiological signals of the brain as a negative
deflection for non-rhyming as compared to rhyming stimuli around 450 ms after stimulus
onset."

Need to Remember Something? Make It Rhyme
http://ideas.time.com/2013/09/17/need-to-remember-something-make-it-rhyme/
"Medical students have long used rhymes and songs to help them master vast quantities of information, and we've just gotten fresh evidence of how effective this strategy can be."

Rhyme processing in the brain: An ERP mapping study
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0167876006003151
"The event-related potential (ERP) N450 component has been described in rhyme detection tasks as a negative response elicited by non-rhyming words in comparison to rhyming ones."

Rhyming tasks male and female brains differently
http://www.yaleherald.com/archive/xix/3.2.95/news/rhyming.html
"Women are more emotional. Men are more rational. Men are better at math, women at English. Men are insensitive. Women are nurturing. Gender stereotypes like these have persisted for centuries, contributing to the popular notion that men and women view the world in fundamentally different ways."

Fetal Reactions to Recurrent Maternal Speech
http://www.psych.yorku.ca/adler/courses/4010/Articles/DeCasper%20et%20al%201994.pdf
"The hypothesis that normal prenatal exposure to maternal speech influences the early development of speech perception is consistent with research showing that pregnant women's speech sounds are present in utero, the late-term fetuses possess relevant perceptual abilities, and that postnatal perception of speech sounds can be influenced by prenatal experience."

Feel The Rhythm, Feel The Rhyme: New Insights Into Musical Beat Perception

Rhyme
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhyme

Using rhyme in poetry makes it sound a lot better, especially when you rhyme every two lines, but when you encounter a situation where you have one really good line but can't think of anything decent to rhyme it with quickly, it is seriously a bitch spending a lot of time for that one line; even more so if you have the lines after it XD

One bright morning, in the middle of the night
Two dead boys got up to fight
Back to back they faced each other
And drew out their knives and shot each other
Two deaf policemen heard the noise and came to arrest the two dead boys
If you don't believe my story is true, go ask the blind man he was it too.

I love rhymes! They're my favourite part of language :) If you're into story-telling in rhyme and rhythm, without doing a Google search, see if you can guess the author behind this tale of tragicomedy:

"[Prelude]
Yes man, as the world turns, we all experience things in life
Trials and tribulations that we all must go through
When someone wants to test us, when someone tries our patience

[Verse 1]
I hang with a bunch of hippies and wacky tobacco planters
Who swallow lit roaches and light up like jack-o-lanterns:-
Outsidaz baby, and we suin' the courts
Cause we dope as fuck and only get a two in the Source
They never shoulda booted me outta reform school
Deformed fool, taking a shit in a warm pool
'til they threw me out the Ramada Inn
I said it wasn't me, I got a twin (Oh my God, it's you! Not again!)
It all started when my mother took my bike away
Cause I murdered my guinea pig and stuck him in the microwave
After that, it was straight to the forty ouncers
Slappin' teachers and jackin' off in front of my counselors
Class clown freshman, dressed like Les Nessman
Fuck the next lesson, I'll pass the test guessin'
And all the other kids said "____ is a thizz head
He'll never last, the only class he'll ever pass is phys-ed"
Maybe true, 'til I told this bitch in gym class
That she was too fat to swim laps she need a Slim Fast
(Who? Me?) Yeah, bitch you so big
You walked into Vic Tanny's and stepped on Jenny Craig
She picked me up to snap me like a skinny twig
Put me in a headlock, then I thought of my guinea pig
I felt the evilness and started transformin'
It began stormin', I heard a bunch of cheerin' fans swarmin'
Grabbed that bitch by her hair, drug her across the ground
And took her up to the highest diving board and tossed her down
Sorry coach, it's too late to tell me stop
While I drop this bitch face down and watch her belly flop

[Interlude]
As the world turns, these are the days of our lives
These are the things that we must go through, day by day

[Verse 2]
We drive around in million dollar sports cars
While little kids hide this tape from their parents like bad report cards
Outsidaz, and we suing the courts
Cause we dope as fuck and only get a two in the Source
Hypochondriac, hanging out at the laundromat
Where all the raunchy fat white trashy blondes be at
Dressed like a sailor, standin' by a pail of garbage
It's almost dark and I'm still tryna nail a trailor park bitch
I met a slut and said "What up? It's nice to meet ya
I'd like to treat you to a Faygo and a slice of pizza
But I'm broke as fuck and I don't get paid 'til the first of next month
But if you would care to join me, I was about to roll this next blunt
But I ain't got no weed, no Phillies, or no papers
Plus I'm a rapist and a repeated prison escapist
So give me all your money and don't try nothing funny
Cause you know your stinking ass is too fat to try to outrun me"
I went to grab my gun, that's when her ass put it on me
With an uppercut and hit me with a basket of laundry
I fell through the glass doors, started causing a scene
Slid across the floor and flew right into a washing machine
Jumped up with a broken back
Thank God I was smokin' crack all day and doped up on coke and smack
All I wanted to do was rape the bitch and snatch her purse
Now I wanna kill her but yo, I gotta catch her first
Ran through Rally's parkin' lot and took a shortcut
Saw the house she ran up in and shot her fuckin' porch up
Kicked the door down to murder this divorced slut
Looked around the room that's when I seen her bedroom door shut
I know you're in there bitch, I got my gun cocked
You might as well come out now, she said "Come in, it's unlocked"
I walked in and all I smelled was Liz Claiborne
And seen her spread across the bed naked watchin' gay porn
She said "Come here big boy, let's get acquainted"
I turned around to run, twisted my ankle and sprained it
She came at me at full speed, nothing could stop her
I shot her five times and every bullet bounced off her
I started to beg "No, please let go"
But she swallowed my fuckin' leg whole like an egg roll
With one leg left, now I'm hoppin' around crippled
I grabbed my pocket knife and sliced off her right nipple
Just tryna buy me some time then I remembered this magic trick
Duh-dah-duh-dah-duh-duh, go-go gadget dick!
Whipped that shit out, and ain't no doubt about it
It hit the ground and caused an earthquake and power outage
I shouted, now bitch, let's see who gets the best
Stuffed that shit in crooked and fucked that fat slut to death

[Postlude]
And as we go along, throughout the days of our lives
We all face small obstacles and challenges everyday
That we must go through, these are the things
That surround us through our atmosphere, every day
Every single day the world keeps turning"

Here is the comment section dulett, where no-one ever forget.
Forget the pity, from the town and the city.

Some turn it of to stop the hate, but they where to late.
To late to save it, from the bottom pit.

Scars are here some complain, that is the problem main.
The problem big, for it you don`t have to dig.

But I don`t judge the people here, for they with me there opinions share.
To share it opens the doorway, for me here in Norway.

It makes me them understand, from every isle and land.
So understanding can be, hi and goodbye from me.

Charging up the hill during the night
Glancing up a grenade flying like a kite
Big loud bang last thing u hear
Glancing around like a car and a deer

Flying through the air without my mind set
Not getting up because I do not bet
Glancing to the right a man with a stare
Noticing a wound like paper and a tear

Remembering he used to be my bud
Rocketing up for a shell to be a dud
Running on instinct without a mind
Feeling tied up stuck in a bind

Aimed at a man wondering if I'm done
All u hear a click of a gun
