Music affects many parts of our brain and may help memory loss. Ambient sounds can help or even hinder creativity. Some feel that music choices reflect personality. Join Dr. Richard Isaacson and Justin Berger for a lively discussion of how music can keep our brain healthy.

Justin Berger, BS is a professionally trained pianist (Berklee School of Music, Boston MA), piano instructor and bandleader for Soul Revival Band, who has worked closely with people with memory loss, and others with normal memory who want to actively stimulate their brain with music.
