Recent advancements in neuroscience and clinical research have demonstrated the profound impact of music on the human brain. Over the past three decades, this research has been translated into clinical interventions and neurologic rehabilitation to improve movement, language, and cognition for those living with neurologic injury or disease.
This lecture will present the neuroscience foundation along with the most up-to-date research supporting this cutting-edge approach to clinical care. Live demonstrations and clinical videos will help to illustrate the interventions and approaches discussed.
Note: Appropriate for the lay person as well as clinicians, caregivers, and health practitioners.
