This chapter discusses neuroscience and music research and how this research has informed the use of music in therapy for rehabilitation. First, it begins with evidence of cortical engagement when listening and performing music. Second, it explores motor synchronization to rhythm. Third, it presents evidence of successful rehabilitation of sensorimotor, cognitive, and communication with populations including Parkinson's, stroke, and multiple sclerosis. Finally, the chapter presents how this research has created and continues to inform the practice of Neurologic Music Therapy. This evidence, together, illustrates how the use of music therapy has shifted from a social science model to a neuroscience model and how the use of music in therapy can benefit people in rehabilitation.

Keywords:   meuroscience, music research, motor synchronization, rhythm, Neurologic Music Therapy
