Musical Imaginations

Recent advances in experimental techniques have enabled researchers to identify the effects of music on the brain, body, and mind. Clinical scientists are beginning to explore the application of this knowledge for developing treatments aimed at activating particular areas of the brain, and eliciting other physiological changes that promote healing. This chapter focuses on one example of this trend towards reconnecting music with medicine: using singing to promote speech recovery after stroke. It includes an overview of basic research on the neuroscience of singing, how singing is related to the neuroscience of speech deficits, and a potential application of this knowledge in the form of a speech therapy for stroke patients with non-fluent aphasia: Melodic Intonation Therapy.

Keywords:   neuroscience, music therapy, singing, brain, healing, speech recovery, stroke patients, speech therapy, Melodic Intonation Therapy
