Boost Your Attention, Thinking, and Memory with Music


Chemo brain, a collection of cognitive changes, affects many people after their cancer treatment. Symptoms of chemo brain vary from short-term memory loss and concentration difficulties to feelings of mental fogginess. Music has been found to have a positive impact on memory and brain function in a number of ways, from stimulating neural pathways to improving mood and reducing stress.

In this workshop, Karen Popkin, a MSK music therapist, will share insights gained from new research studies in this field, as well as helpful tools you can use for improving memory, focus, and stamina. She will also give an interactive demonstration of these strategies, so that we can practice together.

Audience: This workshop is open to people who have been treated for cancer and their caregivers.
