Neuroscience and Music


Two special guests give in-depth insight into the neurological reasons why music therapy is effective. Dr. Elizabeth Stegemoller is a Professor of Kinesiology at Iowa State University. She is also a music therapist and a neuro-scientist. The second guest, Patricia Izbicki,  is a graduate student at ISU who has a music backbackgound and is currently working towards a PHD in neurology.
These guests acquaint us with some of the many benefits that music, musical training, and music therapy can provide in early childhood education, and also in alleviating conditions like ADHD, Parkinson's disease and dementia. You'll also hear from people who are currently benefiting from music therapy.
