Topic 3: Musical based auditory training programs
Location: Zoom webinar
Date: 30 April, 2020
Presenter: John Newall
Music has played a significant role in human culture throughout human development. Claims abound in both the scientific literature and popular culture about the positive effects of music on; concentration, retention of information, intelligence, and even on the growth of crops and pot plants! Whilst these claims have varying scientific support, research has certainly shown the significant effects that musical training has on the brain and how it responds to sound. With a fairly robust finding that professionally trained musicians perform better across a range of auditory tasks, interest in investigating the potential for musical training to improve the listening abilities of those with hearing aids or cochlear implants has begun to grow. In this workshop we will discuss the evidence surrounding the benefits of involving music in the rehabilitation of the hearing impaired.
