ELYON, J.R.  e  LOTTER, G.A.. The role of music as wholebrain activity in inner change. Koers (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.73, n.3, pp.527-548. ISSN 2304-8557.

In this article the importance of music as wholebrain activity in the context of inner change is discussed. Attention is given to the following relevant features: the psychological dimensions, the postmodern context in which it happens, functions of the brain and especially the consequences of the use of the whole brain instead of the leftbrain approach. The background to the development of music and the influence it may have on inner change is also discussed. Due to the paradigm shift towards postmodernity, feelings and experiences are more easily expressed. According to the results of the research inner change and healing of the postmodern individual may be promoted by the use of music as well as symbols, metaphors, rituals and art. The final conclusion of this article is that music as a wholebrain activity can and should be used to bring about inner change.

Palavras-chave : inner change; music therapy; wholebrain activity.
