The Impact of Neuroscience on Music Education Advocacy and Philosophy
Peterson, Amber Dahlen
Arts Education Policy Review, v112 n4 p206-213 2011
This content analysis examines how philosophy and advocacy articles published between 2005 and 2010 were influenced by current neuroscience research. The contents of twelve journals were explored, resulting in the inclusion of forty-five articles in this analysis. Recently, there has been a growing interest in neuroscientific research on music. Articles were coded for latent content and emerging themes to determine if this interest has begun to be expressed in philosophy and advocacy writings. The educational implications and issues of using neuroscientific findings are addressed, and recommendations are offered for using future research for advocacy purposes. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
