The Future of Healthcare

We had an interesting lecture on this week, as our lecturer had just returned from a neuroscience conference in which she presented her research findings on the positive healing effects of choral singing on the brain on people with depression.
During our lecture, she expressed her views with much conviction: “The drug companies are losing their grip on healthcare. Too much money, too many side effects. Researchers are increasingly finding that everything is linked to the brain. If we can change the brain, we can change the body. And WE have an amazing tool to change the brain with – Music!”
Following which she danced around the room and got us to sing songs in different keys, arrangements, dynamics and tempos, and analyze the neuropsychological effects of what we did.
