More about the program

What does contemporary neuroscience tell us about music and the brain? How do these findings support clinical applications of music therapy in child development as well as recovery or maintenance of function in adults with brain injuries?  Drawing from research and her extensive clinical work, many chronicled by Dr. Oliver Sacks, Dr. Tomaino provides an overview of music and the brain and shares evidence for the efficacy of clinical applications of music in stroke rehabilitation, enhanced function in Parkinson’s disease and improved memory and quality of life in those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Join Alex Doman and his guest Concetta Tomaino for insights into music and the brain. This program will help you understand:

  • How is music used in therapy?
  • What is music therapy?
  • What are some of the clinical applications of music to help those with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and stroke? Children with developmental delays?
  • How is the field of neuroscience helping inform the field of music therapy?
