Reproducibility, Transparency, and Lessons from Meta-research for Music Medicine

John P.A. Ioannidis, MD, DSc

There has been increasing interest in empirical studies to understand the replication and reproducibility of scientific research. With close to 200,000,000 published scholarly documents across science, there is tremendous potential to synthesize the available evidence and to appraise also how research practices are evolving over time...

Music and the Unconscious

Athanassios S. Fokas, PhD, MD

Visual perception is achieved via the deconstruction of a given percept followed by its reconstruction. I will refer to the unconscious reconstruction of the percept as its mental representation. About a third of second after an unconscious reconstruction, the brain informs itself of what the brain already knows. Namely, the unconscious informs consciousness of the given percept.

At this moment, the first ‘big bang’ takes place: awareness. I will refer to the conscious construction of the percept as its mental image. The generalization of this process gives rise to the first hypothesis: every conscious experience is preceded by an unconscious process....

Validation Of The Music Therapy Assessment Tool for Awareness in Disorders Of Consciousness (MATADOC) With The Coma Recovery Scale (Revised)

Dr. Wendy L. Magee, Temple University, Philadelphia

The Music Therapy Assessment Tool for Awareness in Disorders of Consciousness (MATADOC) is a standardized music-based assessment of awareness for adults with prolonged disorders of consciousness (PDoC). Assessing awareness is highly complex with this minimally responsive population. Auditory responsiveness is poorly assessed by existing PDoC measure protocols. Music has been found to boost arousal, attention and cognition in PDoC patients, and yet standardized assessments of awareness in PDoC use primarily verbal interventions. The MATADOC’s performance in comparison to the criterion standard assessment of awareness....

Research Findings On The Effects Of Music Therapy On Hospitalized Preterm Infants And Their Caregivers, In A Greek Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: A Pilot Study

Faiy An. Evaggelou & Lelouda Stamou

The presentation aims at presenting research findings on the importance of music therapy interventions in family centered prenatal care for preterm infants hospitalized in a Greek NICU. Research findings on the effects of music interventions on the infants’ vital bio-physiological functions and the emotional and behavioral benefits for both babies and their caregivers (mothers) will be analytically presented, from the first known and published research, in Greece. The effects of the....

Exploring the use of music and music therapy to address anxiety for women undergoing gynaecological and fertility treatments

Dr. Alison Short

Although focusing particularly on physical recovery, the cardiac rehabilitation journey must also address psychosocial issues for recovery and secondary prevention benefits. The music psychotherapy modality of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) effectively addresses this clinical need. Resulting from previous work, this presentation explores the way that the music itself resonates and amplifies effects within GIM practice for this clinical population. It systematically explores....

Relationships between rhythm perception and cognition in the healthy aging population

Aaron Colverson, Ph.D. candidate, University of Florida

Little is known about overlaps between aging, declines in rhythm/timing perception, and healthy cognition. Neurobehavioral function in regions associated with executive functioning (working memory, attention, inhibition, processing speed) decline as a result of age. This may include declines in precise and accurate rhythm/timing perception. This literature review highlights....
