Music and the Brain


"The neural network for music processing is highly specialized and widely distributed."
-Hodges, Levitin, & Sacks

Active Engagement in music can bridge the gaps:

  • Right and left hemisphere in the brain
  • Primitive and complex areas of the brain
  • People Languages/non-languages
  • Fear and Safety
  • Hyper/Hypo-arousal and homeostasis
