IAMM With You: In Conversation with Artur C. Jaschke, PhD
In this lecture, we will explore the influence of music based therapies and interventions from the neonatal intensive care unit up through childhood in light of music education to young adulthood.
Music touches us quite literally and provides us with and elegant insight into brain development, epigenetics and transfer to learning and experiencing the world around us. How does the brain process, perceive and produce music and how can this be used in clinical settings NICU and what are the benefits from music education on cognitive development?
