Media Morsel – Music Therapy and Aphasia

Posted Dec 27 2009 12:00am

This is a good one for those of you interested in neurologic music therapy or neurological rehabilitation. Music therapy is effective in treating many symptoms of stroke. Music therapists might address motor and gait issues, grief and other emotional issues, and communicative disabilities such as aphasia and apraxia. As you will hear in this news bit, music is processed in many areas of the brain, providing alternate neurological pathways through which one may process and express language. Enjoy!
