The Clinical Neuroscience of Music: Evidence Based Approaches and Neurologic Music Therapy

par Auteur Michael H. Thaut, Gerard Francisco et Volker Hoemberg
Modern music therapy, starting around the middle of the Twentieth century as an organized profession has traditionally been rooted in concepts of social science. The basic value of music in therapy was considered to derive from emotional and social functions in personal life experiences and a society's culture. Emotional expression, social roles to facilitate group association, integration, and relationship building, as well as general concepts of well-being and health were considered and are still today core functions to explain music as a therapeutic modality.
