What is neurologic music therapy?
Neurologic music therapy (NMT) is based on scientific findings in music perception & production and specifically designed for neurological disorders/conditions (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, autism, cerebral palsy, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury). NMT was developed by Dr. Michael Thaut, Dr. Corene Hurt-Thaut, Dr. Gerald McIntosh, M.D., and Ruth Rice, DPT at the Center for Biomedical Research in Music. The techniques in NMT address the sensorimotor, speech and language, cognitive, and emotional domains of individuals with neurological disorders.
