Course DescriptionThere is a growing body of evidence indicating connections between music and language abilities. Functional neuroimaging allows us to study the relations more systematically. This course was designed to offer an overview of the research in this emerging discipline, and a sample of the variety of applications for speech/language interventions of clinical and aging populations.
