About

It’s probably no surprise, but rhythm and language have been proven to go hand in hand in the world of neuroscience. Rhythm skills underlie normal language development, and rhythmic disorders can be at the heart of language disorders. In this lively discussion-demonstration, neuroscientists Dr. Nina Kraus and Dr. Adam Gazzaley are joined by legendary drummer of the Grateful Dead Mickey Hart to illustrate the art and science of these vital discoveries. You’ll witness first-hand examples of how music can strengthen rhythm skills for language, and how interactive computer interfaces can provide a new avenue for digital music medicine.
