Music on the Brain

Wonderful programme on ABC Catalyst recently....Music on the Brain.
Research worldwide has shown that people in deep dementia awake and even sing along when headphones playing familiar music are placed on the head of patients with remarkable results. Similarly, patients with advanced Parkinson’s Disease when experiencing dance music lose all the dyskinesias associated with Parkinsons and begin dancing effortlessly. Footage taken in nursing homes show this amazing temporary change.
If you are in Australia you can view this 30 minute program on ABC iView.
