About this Research Topic
However, music is beginning to be recognized as a core treatment modality in neurorehabilitation and neurodevelopment. Neurologic Music Therapy has been developed over the past 15 years as a standardized treatment methodology and has received medical recognition internationally. Therefore, introducing a Research Topic in regard to biomedical applications of music seems a timely undertaking to offer a dedicated platform for new research in the clinical neuroscience of music and applications of Neurologic Music Therapy.
The Research Topic looks for translational clinical studies, studies exploring neural mechanisms underlying therapeutic effects of music and rhythm, investigations into neuroplasticity associated with biomedical applications of music, and basic neuroscience based projects in music perception, cognition, and production that may lead to new clinical understandings of the role of music and health. Additionally, this Research Topic will also consider review and theory-based papers to help build new research directions.
Keywords: Neuroscience, Neurorehabilitation, music, rhythm, neurologic music therapy
