I want to find research on the use of sound as therapy. Specifically, has anyone investigated the effects of listening to sounds that move in space. I am referring to so-called 3D sounds heard through headphones. I have come across several examples such as Holophonics (tm). It seems to me that when the listener "tracks" sounds as they move across, behind, up and down, etc., the brain has to process the information and organize it. Perhaps some people with neurological disorders would benefit from such activity. At any rate, I hope you understand my interest and have some suggestions for references.
