Webinar #3: Music Therapy and Music-Based Interventions for Movement Disorders

SIG leader: Alexander Pantelyat, MD 

Assistant Professor of Neurology,

Director, Johns Hopkins Center for Music and Medicine (USA)

This Special Interest Group (SIG) focuses on music therapy and other
music and rhythm-based interventions for movement disorders. There will
be a particular emphasis on published studies in Parkinson disease (PD).
The SIG presents evidence from clinical studies on rhythmic auditory
stimulation, therapeutic music performance, singing and dance for PD,
and other types of neurologic music therapy and music medicine
approaches. The SIG includes multidisciplinary participation from
leaders in the field of neurologic music therapy and researchers on
music and rhythm-based interventions. The expected outcome of this SIG
is the creation of a published white paper summarizing the SIG
presentations and highlighting areas for future work.
