How Music Lights up Your Brain

When dementia is affecting certain parts of the brain, music can somehow penetrate through to the deeper parts of the brain that enable people to suddenly talk -or to sing or dance or communicate, or engage with someone.

This knowledge led American Dan Cohen to develop Music & Memory, which uses personally meaningful music to help awaken the mind, restore a person’s identity and reconnect them with their own self as well as with carers, family and friends. There are currently more than 2,000 accredited health services in the US connected to the program.

The personalised music therapy program is now finding its way into aged and community care services in Australia, delivering astounding results in people’s wellbeing, simply by connecting a person to their favourite tunes.
