Welcome to Jackson Music Forum

"Music might provide an alternative entry point" to the brain, because it can unlock so many different doors into an injured or ill brain, said Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, a Harvard University neurologist.
Pitch, harmony, melody, rhythm and emotion - all components of music - engage different regions of the brain. And many of those same regions are also important in speech, movement and social interaction. If a disease or trauma has disabled a brain region needed for such functions, music can sometimes get in through a back door and coax them out by another route, Schlaug says. "In a sense, we're using musical tools to particularly engage certain parts of the brain and then teach the brain new tricks - new tools - to overcome an impairment," he says. Neuroscientists are exploring the role of music in treatment of some of the following: Speech: For about 1 in 5 patients who suffer a stroke, difficulty with speech - aphasia - is a lingering effect. Schlaug and other researchers have found that by practicing to express themselves with a simple form of singing - something that sounds almost like Gregorian chant - aphasic stroke victims significantly improved the fluency of their speech compared with patients whose speech therapy did not include singing. Schlaug says it appears that the "melodic intonation therapy," as it's termed, bypassed the stroke damage done to speech centers in aphasic patients' left brain hemisphere. "It works well and it works instantaneously, and it's hard to think of any medication that has this effect," Schlaug says.

Gottfried Schlaug, the Music and Neuroimaging Laboratory director at Harvard University Medical Center, claims that few activities are as rewarding as music instruction.
Students must organize and utilize multiple senses simultaneously and work with others while receiving an emotional experience that offers regular, immediate feedback. Schlaug said, "It's really hard to come up with an experience similar to that."
