Dear colleagues and young doctors,
With the development of neuroscience new means of therapy and neurorehabilitation have been developed. We have the honor of welcoming Marija Pranjić, a scientist who will be presenting the use of music in therapy!
Marija Pranjić is a PhD student of Music and Health Sciences at the University of Toronto. She holds an MA in Music Therapy from Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research and a MMus in Piano Performance from Academy of Music in Zagreb. Prior to her PhD studies, she worked as a Research Fellow at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Her clinical experience includes working in pediatric neurorehabilitation, oncology, cognitive and developmental delays.
Marija’s research interests lie in the domain of clinical application of music in neuroscience with an emphasis on neuroplasticity in auditory-motor networks and biomedical applications of music for neurologic rehabilitation. At CROSS 16, she will deliver a lecture entitled "Clinical Neuroscience of Music: Applications of music in the health sciences”, presenting the most current state of knowledge about music as a complex sensory language that engages cognitive, affective, and sensorimotor processes in the brain.
