Thursday July 13, 7PM - Neurologic Music Therapy: Clinical Application of Music for Parkinson’s Disease
Presented by Kiera Druhan, MT-BC
Neurologic Music Therapist
Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT)™ is the therapeutic application of music to cognitive, sensory, and motor dysfunctions due to neurologic disease of the human nervous system. NMT has developed standardized interventions and clinical techniques for the use of music to address non-musical goals such as mobility, speech, language, and areas of cognition. These techniques rely on the music perception and production for inducing neuroplastic changes in the brain. NMT has shown to be effective with a variety of populations including stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and more. This presentation will include a brief overview of the neuroscience of music as well as demonstrate several NMT treatment techniques and how you can incorporate them into everyday life.
