About This Project

People who have suffered brain injuries can often lose their memories - a loss that can be distressing to both patients and caregivers. Notably, music is often strongly intertwined with one's personal memories - the first dance at your wedding, your mother's favorite song, or the lullaby you sang to your children.
Music is well known to spark vivid memories, and songs are often associated with events of our lives. I will leverage these phenomena to develop ways to treat neurological patients (e.g, Alzheimer's disease, stroke) and improve their quality of life.
Blast off!
