The art of music may stir the soul but scientists are learning more each day about how it affects our development. This documentary, part of TVO’s World of Wonder science, math and technology programming, examines the role music plays in developing our brains. Beginning with premature infants in neonatal intensive care wards, the film moves through the role of music in enhancing performance in childhood to the role of music therapy in hospital patients, and finally looks at older persons.
