The Emotional Effect of Music Therapy on Palliative Care Cancer Patients

Part of my time working at the Palliative Care Unit at Parc de Salut Mar, Barcelona, was doing some of the music therapy interventions and also gathering Electroencephalography (EEG) data to be analyzed for this study (released in March 2018): EEG-Based Analysis of the Emotional Effect of Music Therapy on Palliative Care Cancer Patients.

It was fascinating to be a part of, to my knowledge, the first study in the world that measured the effect of MT techniques as tools for modulating the emotional state of end-of-life patients using EEG data.
