This report from the Global Council on Brain Health (GCBH), a collaborative of scientists, health professionals, scholars and policy experts convened by the AARP, examines the latest evidence on how music influences brain health. Although more research is needed, the GCBH issue experts have concluded that listening to and making music holds significant potential to support brain health as people age. The GCBH has adopted ten recommendations for individuals to incorporate music into their lives to promote mental well-being, increase social connection, and stimulate thinking skills.
