Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, Music therapy and music-based interventions have received increasing interest in recent decades. In addition to clinical and intervention studies, there has been an increasing number of studies investigating the effects of music on the brain. Of note are active participation and music making in clinical and nonclinical populations. Even though there is a wealth of data already gained in neuromusicological research, more research is needed into the neural, psychosocial, and clinical aspects and influences of music and how music (therapy) can be protocolized, implemented, and assessed in clinical populations. Clinical neuroscience offers methodological access to studying social interaction processes in therapeutic domains by blending richness, ecological validity, and contextual factors of real-world designs. In order to do so, there is a growing demand in amalgamating neuroscience, musicology, medicine, as well as novel technological approaches. This combination increasingly utilizes clinical, neural, and physical data related to music-based therapies and interventions and clinical settings at large. Therefore, this Special Issue will investigate the state of the art in music therapy across pediatric, adult, and elderly populations, inherently aiming at the utilization of new and innovative paradigms in music-based therapies and interventions and their implication for clinical, educational, and neuro(a)typical population. We welcome original research and clinical trials, theoretical papers, reviews (systematic and meta-analyses), clinical protocols, feasibility and pilot studies, brief reports, as well as future prospect reviews.
