Veterans Tap Into the Healing Power of Music

Music is known for its ability to soothe souls and mend broken hearts, but research is showing that it can also heal the brain after trauma. A current example of how this works is found in Musicorps, a restorative program at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, which rehabilitates injured veterans through music. Since music involves several integrated aspects of brain functioning, Musicorps offers wounded veterans a chance to heal mentally and emotionally.

"Music involves so much brain geography,” explained Arthur Bloom, the director of Musicorps, “it can help an uninjured part compensate for an injured part or [even help] an injured part heal.”
