Welcome to The Interdisciplinary Society for Quantitative Research in Music and Medicine (ISQRMM)! ISQRMM is a society of scholars involved in the study of music and medicine. ISQRMM defines Music medicine as the systematic application of musical stimuli on a patient to either treat or investigate the impact of musical nuances on the patient’s physiology, including neurologic and neuropsychiatric states. Music medicine’s application is based on empirical studies such as double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials on healthy and unhealthy individuals to document the benefits of music from the cellular to the molecular levels of the human body. ISQRMM also pursues overarching benefits of music general health and well-being. ISQRMM also considers as essential all the tenets of music therapy as well as potential pathologies that may be attributed to musical experience or performance.
