Tunes Could Bring Back Memories Lost to Alzheimer’s

What does music really do when You work with clients?    Please share any insights or reference on this matter if You can spare the time!   This is most interesting and provokes my questioning.   One of the most devastating aspects of Alzheimer’s is its effect on patients’ ability to recall life events. Several studies have found that music helps to strengthen these individuals’ autobiographical memories, and a paper in the November 2013 Journal of Neurolinguistics builds on these findings by exploring the linguistic quality of those recollections.   If this line of research holds up – we may find that Music may be making sessions more memorable or accessible/useful to client’s minds and memory systems beyond making them more at ease!
