CRBLM Distinguished Lecture/BRAMS Workshop 2017
Brain, Music and Health
Therapeutic role of music across the lifespan
When: Friday, March 31, 2017, 9am to 5pm
Where: BRAMS Conference Room, BRAMS, 1430 Boulevard Mont Royal, Suite 0-114 | Université de Montréal | Outremont, QC H2V 4P3
Keynote/ CRBLM Distinguished lecture by Dr. Michael Thaut, 3 pm followed by Panel discussion
The profound impact of music on human society has been documented since ancient times. However, the systematic use of music as a therapeutic tool is relatively new. Increasing empirical evidence is emerging from research across the world to support the role of music for rehabilitative purposes that has in turn been aided by advances in neuroscience. From its use in enhancing day-to-day functioning to its targeted use in neurocognitive disorders, the potential of music has been demonstrated across the lifespan. This workshop will highlight the advances in this newly emerging field of music-based rehabilitation and the potential neural mechanisms underlying it.
