Ball State Music Therapy For Alzheimer?s Patients

by Sammy Edmonds posted Apr 3 2014 10:47AM
Ball State University students are using music to help bring patients with Alzheimer's disease out of their fog of memories.
"Musical Memory" is a national program. The “star Press” reports that the Ball State chapter works from professor Mike Gerhard's telecommunications class.
Students hook patients up with iPods and headphones and treat them to the music they prefer, whether it’s gospel, rhythm and blues or old-time rock 'n' roll.
The researchers say sometimes listening to the tunes helps lift the patients' mental fog and can bring old memories back into sight.
