Music, Development and Rehabilitation - Symposium on 8 July 2021

Online and in Geneva, Switzerland

The symposium "Music, Development and Rehabilitation" will take place on 8th July 2021 from 08h45 - 19h00 CEST. You can join either via ZOOM or in person at Campus Biotech in Geneva, Switzerland.

The aim of the symposium is to illustrate evidence-based cutting-edge research in three main domains:

  1. Early Care
  2. Human Cognitive Development and, more generally,
  3. Rehabilitation.

Experts in these three domains will lead the symposium and respond to all participants' questions .
A number of Music Showcases will conclude the symposium.

The effects of music training, entrainment and experience on brain and behavior are well known. Less known is how musical experience impacts brain plasticity in sensitive periods. The human brain is shaped by experience: what kind of musical experience is most suited at a particular developmental stage? What role does emotion play in the effects of musical activity?
We are particularly sensitive to sensory exposure early in life, in adolescence and during rehabilitation, also in old age. What stage of development is optimal for a musical intervention or training? What are the neural mechanisms through which music and related activities act?
