Music on the Brain

This episode was broadcast by the ABC’s Catalyst program on Tuesday 8 March 2016. Its summary is shown below. 

“If you had to make a playlist of your life, what would be on it? And if, toward the end of your life, your mind and memories were fading away, would this soundtrack help bring them back? Catalyst takes you inside an extraordinary new program which is revealing that personalised playlists can re-awaken the brains of people with advanced dementia ... and even allow people with severe Parkinsons to unfreeze and move. Along the way we look more deeply at the power of music in all our lives - why is it so emotional, so memorable and so powerful that even when much of the brain is gone, music can bring it alive?” 

We firmly believe that music plays a very significant role in the healing of the brain following traumatic brain injuries.
