Summary
As many non-Western cultures have always known, music affects human development from the womb to the grave-in fact, it may even have specific health benefits. This documentary examines the role music plays in shaping our brains and improving our well-being. Starting with the effect of musical vibrations on premature infants in neonatal intensive care, the film moves on to study the role of music in enhancing childhood learning, the rewards of music therapy in hospitals, and the ways in which music can help the elderly. Expert commentators include Dr. Isabelle Peretz, a specialist in music cognition, and Dr. John Sloboda, a pioneer in the field of music psychology.
