Training endogenous task shifting using neurologic music therapy
People with acquired brain injury (ABI) are highly susceptible to disturbances in executive functioning (EF) and these effects are pervasive. Research studies using music therapy for cognitive improvement in this population are limited. Scientific research regarding the proposed neural correlates of executive functions abound. Additionally, scientific music research is gaining momentum. The presence of shared neural correlates and extended pathways between certain kinds of music and executive functions is clear. Further, the capacity of music training to induce neural plasticity has significant ...
