Affiliated Researchers

 

Our Clinical Music, Technology and Brain Interventions platform combines clinical practice, education and research. This happens internally at ArtEZ, but also with external partners and stakeholders.

A space where students as well as professionals can gain hands-on experience in clinical methodologies.
Furthermore, it is dedicated to research on the interaction between humans and machines in a medical humanities approach, facilitated through (music) technology and (neuro) psychology.

What is music, and why is it so unique in touching our emotions and contribute to care, cure and dare?
Investigating musicianship as therapeutic goal and understanding our use of neuroscience, technology and therapeutic interventions fit for the 21st century.
