This presentation will focus on a study which identifies through a brain-computer interface, the correlation between the records of encephalographic signals of intergenerational music therapy activities, with the regulation of emotions. Emotion regulation is conceptualized as momentary affective states which arise from experiences that modify various areas of the brain, and the physical and psychological functioning of people.
A convenience sample of 14 adults, youth and children in an age range between 7 and 74 years participated in the study, forming an intergenerational group. The participants were evaluated simultaneously during 16 sessions.
The data were processed quantitatively through non-parametric statistics with Wilcoxon signed rank test, then qualitatively interpreted with a categorical analysis matrix for the triangulation of information, thus identifying the emotional regulation strategies resulting from intergenerational music therapy methods.
The results show that intergenerational music therapy methods and techniques significantly facilitate the regulation of emotions for individuals and groups in terms of attention and concentration; however, the study sample should be expanded for greater validity and reliability in the results.
