The Arts and Aging: Building The Science

How can the arts improve our lives as we age? It's a great question and one that is addressed in this 28-page report from the National Endowment for the Arts. Released in 2012, this report presents the official summary findings from a National Academies Workshop formally titled "Research Gaps and Opportunities for Exploring the Relationship of the Arts to Health and Well-Being in Older Adults." The report contains an executive summary, a brief background essay and several short chapters, including "Musical Training and Brain Function" and "Music Therapy for Dementia." It's an engaging work that sits at the intersection of arts, medicine, and public policy.
