During the last decades, there have been major advances in mapping the brain regions that underlie our ability to perceive, experience, and produce music and how musical training can shape the structure and function of the brain. This progress has fueled and renewed clinical interest towards uncovering the neural basis for the impaired or preserved processing of music in different neurological illnesses, such as stroke and Alzheimer’s disease, and how music-based interventions can be used in their rehabilitation and care. As the prevalence of these illnesses in increasing in our aging society, it is important to develop music-based interventions that are enjoyable, effective, and easily applicable in the everyday care of the patients. In this talk, I will discuss about the recent advances in (i) neuroimaging studies mapping the neural architecture underlying deficient processing of music (amusia) and (ii) randomized controlled trials determining the cognitive, emotional, and neural efficacy of music-based interventions in the rehabilitation and care of stroke, traumatic brain injury, and dementia.
