Learning to Drum in Children with Down Syndrome

Principal Investigator: Amy Needham, Ph.D.

Other researchers: Miriam Lense, Alexandra Key


The study involves two in-lab visits where your child will complete a few tasks while we measure their brain activity using EEG. This will involve trained lab members putting a special non-invasive cap on your child that will allow us to measure underlying brain activity. Additionally, your child will receive 8 weeks of complimentary drumming lessons, which will begin either after the first or second visit to the lab.
