Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, ..., 12 July 2015 [cached]
Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, director of the music and neuroimaging laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, said there is mounting interest among researchers to measure the effectiveness of music in rehab efforts.
He said there are certain benefits clearly illustrated in studies - like using rhythmic music to help stabilize the walking abilities of Parkinson's patients, or singing to help those who have trouble with speech. And, he said, it activates our "internal reward system" by releasing dopamine, which is involved in motor control.
"Music is a unique stimulus," Schlaug said. "Inherent in music is that we want to move to it, we want to sing to it. It moves us emotionally."
But it is unclear how those therapies compare to other treatments, he said.
"That's what a lot of people have an interest in proving," Schlaug said.

This kind of automatic response is usually controlled by the right side of the brain, while speech is usually centered in the left, says Gottfried Schlaug, director of music neuroimaging and stroke recovery at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Melodies, also trigger the right brain.
And tapping a finger at the same time, turns on the brain's movement centers, which control the tongue and lips, promoting speech, says Schlaug, whose research at Harvard Medical School shows these kinds of activities can rewire the right side of the brain to look like a healthy left.

"It's really hard to come up with an experience similar to that as an education intervention," said Gottfried Schlaug, the director of the Music and Neuroimaging Laboratory at Harvard Medical School. "Not only does it require attention and coordination of multiple senses, but it often triggers emotions, involves cooperation with other people, and provides immediate feedback to the student on how well he or she is progressing," he said. "Music, on its own, has also been shown to trigger the reward area of the brain," he noted.

All these findings ultimately could lead to improved therapies for people with brain injuries or learning disabilities, Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, director of the Music and Neuroimaging Laboratory at Harvard Medical School, said in a Monday afternoon news conference.
"Music might provide an alternative access into a broken or dysfunctional system within the brain," said Schlaug, an associate professor of neurology at Harvard.
The new findings all seem to indicate that training with a musical instrument can affect the brain in profound ways that could prove useful both in education and in therapy, Harvard's Schlaug said.
"Listening to and making music is not only an auditory experience, but it is a multisensory and motor experience," he said.
