Mari Tervaniemi (Helsinki):
“Music as a means to foster neuroplasticity” 


Abstract: I will introduce recent findings revealing enhanced brain mechanisms caused by long-term musical training, as well as by informal music activities at home. Furthermore, I will present examples of how casual music activities, such as music listening and singing, can be used in neurological rehabilitation to promote health and wellbeing in patients and their family members.
