Arts & Neuroscience
Neuroplasticity (includes neuroscience)
This Special Symposium will highlight the intersection where art meets science. Through live performance, lecture, and interactive demonstrations with the special guest artist and audience, we will outline the art of drumming and the underlying neural mechanisms of rhythm perception and production. Translating these principles to clinical practice, we will highlight how drumming can be used to improve functional outcomes in patients with neurological injury and disease. New research will also be presented on how drumming and rhythm impact neuroplasticity.
