Podcast – How using sound to treat disease is music to one researcher’s ears

Simone Dalla Bella of Montréal’s International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research asks “How can music help us in our daily tasks? And how can it slow down the deleterious effects of diseases such as Parkinson’s?”

Why is it that some people who are perfectly capable of hearing a beat still can’t dance? Researchers at the International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research are trying to establish a correlation between music and cognitive skills such as speech, memory, attention span and a host of other executive functions. Their research findings could lead to major breakthroughs for people with cognitive impairments.

The audio file of this podcast is only available in French, An English transcript is available.


Balado – Utiliser des stimuli auditifs pour traiter des maladies cognitives: de la musique aux oreilles d’un chercheur…

Et si la musique nous permettait de mieux réaliser nos tâches quotidiennes? Et si l’on pouvait freiner les effets délétères de maladies comme la maladie de Parkinson grâce à un stimuli auditif? C’est ce dont Simone Dalla Bella est convaincu et ce pourquoi il co-dirige le Laboratoire international de recherche sur le Cerveau, la Musique et le Son.
