Claude Alain, PhD
Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest -University of Toronto
In the last 20 years, a surge of research has aimed to find ways of mitigating age-related cognitive decline, showing healthy diet, physical activity, bilingualism, volunteering, mindfulness training, "gamified" puzzle training, and playing music can help older adults maintain physical and cognitive fitness. Dr. Alain's talk examines the unique promise shown in playing music. Behavioral and neuroimaging studies provide converging evidence that musicians exhibit superior auditory and cognitive skills and cope better with age-related changes in hearing loss and cognition. The benefits of musical training on the aging auditory brain open exciting new avenues for developing innovative remediation programs and improved rehabilitation protocols to sustain healthy aging and brain health.
The host is Yune Lee, PhD.
The spring 2023 season will be in person at Center for BrainHealth (lunch provided) and live-streamed. Register free of charge for the season and join us for as many talks as you are able.
