It was a noisy morning at Dyscover today! Neurological Music Therapist Elisabeth Nightingale, from Chiltern Music Therapy, engaged members in singing, humming, drumming and jamming. For most people, singing is controlled by the right side of the brain, whereas talking is controlled by the left side of the brain. This means that some people with aphasia find it easier to sing than to talk. Members had the opportunity to express themselves through music rather than language.
