Jon Langford - Brain Song Radio Episode #1

Harnessing the power of the musical mind to raise the quality of our lives as we age.


Atlantic Fellow Heidi Clare recorded the first episode of Brain Song Radio live at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco, interviewing musician Jon Langford and neurologist Bruce Miller to discuss creativity in the brain.

Brain Song Radio aims to raise awareness of the value of music as a cognitive tool. It is now common for doctors to advise patients who are at risk or suffering from dementia to exercise, eat well, and stimulate their brain. Music is a pleasurable way to stimulate your brain. Sing, play, dance, listen to live music. If you want good things to come out of your brain, doesn’t it make sense to take care with what you put in your brain?
