What the Research says

Research has shown that neurologic music therapy helps patients with language or cognitive difficulties and can improve movement in patients who have suffered a stroke*.

This is achieved because music also effectively simulates the areas of the brain involved in processing language, auditory perception, attention, memory, executive control, and motor control.

Music therapy also provides family and carers with an additional way to interact with a person who is minimally responsive.

Through the regular use of music therapy areas of the brain involved in learning, auditory and motor control can be helped to interact more efficiently.

The sessions are also very enjoyable and provide the basis to build new community groups.
