Description
Making music is an intense, multi-sensory and motor experience that is typically initiated at an early age and practiced throughout a musician's lifetime. Emerging research over the years has shown that long-term music making and continuous practice of learned skills can be a strong stimulator for neuroplastic changes in the developing, as well as the adult brain and has positive effects on motion, emotion and cognition. This suggests that music-making engages, links and changes brain regions and may provide an alternative entry point that could be useful for remediating impaired neural processes. videorecording | 63 minutes | Videorecording (Form).
