Therapeutic use crescendos thanks to advances in brain science.

“Where words fail, music speaks." — Hans Christian Andersen

Music forges deep connections in the brain. Neuroscientists are just beginning to understand these connections and how to use them to help heal the brain after injury from stroke or degenerative disease. In this multipart program, you will hear from different speakers on the fascinating subject of music neuroscience. Learn the role music plays in neurodevelopment and brain rehabilitation; how music from their past helps Alzheimer’s patients remember, and finally, hear the incredible story of how singing brought an opera singer’s speaking voice back after a stroke.
