M4A is a research project evaluating the effects of music therapy compared to a play-based intervention to improve social communication, participation, mental health, and brain functioning in autistic children aged 6 to 12 years. It is designed to provide strong evidence of clinical effects and working mechanisms of music therapy, and will contribute to a better understanding of autism and neuroplasticity.

M4A is a randomised controlled trial conducted in Norway and Austria. It is led by NORCE Norwegian Research Centre (PI Christian Gold) and conducted in collaboration with the University of Bergen (Co-PI Karsten Specht) and the University of Vienna (Co-PI Giorgia Silani).
