A part of MMM's mission is to educate our community and public about the latest scientific findings regarding the benefits of music and the brain through several platforms including our in-print resources. Music seems to be retained in the brain differently from other sorts of cognition such as memory and language and can be accessed as a form of communication when other avenues are lost.
