Music Therapy

The Music, Imaging, and Neural Dynamics (MIND) Laboratory is seeking older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) to participate in a research study on how music intervention affects the brain and gene expression. All studies will take place at the Northeastern Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex. Participants must be above 50 years old, have normal hearing, and pass pre-screening to take part in the study. Eligible participants will complete surveys, listening and cognitive tasks, MRI scanning of their brain, and blood draws.

If you are interested, please email the MIND Lab at and we will set up a pre-screening phone interview to determine your eligibility.
