The Rhythm of Recovery: Brain Injury and the Power of Music

(BrainTrust Canada) – Music serves many purposes. It is a source of entertainment, happiness, community, learning and, most importantly for people recovering from brain injury, music stimulates the mind. As an organization that has supported individuals living with brain injury since 1986, we, at BrainTrust Canada, have seen firsthand the amazing, intricate relationship between music and the brain.

“I have worked with many clients throughout the years who have sustained life-changing injuries to their brain,” explains BrainTrust Executive Director, Amanda McFarlane. “Despite initially losing and needing to re-learn abilities like walking and talking, some brain injury survivors retain incredible musical abilities.” CONTINUE
