“In this century of science and music, music therapists are moving toward in-depth understanding of music’s impact on physiologic function. Dr. Miller’s brilliant and carefully researched book is most timely! Through astute and clear descriptions of state-of-the-art research and clinical work with sample cases, Dr. Miller explains how biofeedback techniques, combined with targeted music-therapy interventions, can result in physiological, psychological and cognitive rehabilitation. The information provides insight into how neurologic feedback training incorporating music-therapy approaches can attain positive adaptations in a variety of diagnosed individuals. This book is an important contribution to the field.”
