The Effects of Musical Training on Brain Connectivity

Robin Wilkins, Donald Hodges, Jonathan Burdette

Music training has been shown to affect brain processes involving speech and language rehabilitation in stroke recovery, brain palasticity, Parkinson's gait training, speech and language development, spatial reasoning, auditory working memory and the mirror-neuron system. This project examines whether formal musical training affects brain connectivity.

This project is funded by the Music Research Institute of the University of North Carolina Greensboro, and Wake Forest School of Medicine.
