Music Helps Alzheimers and Mild Cognitive Impairment

"The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function reports that early research on the therapeutic effects of music indicates that it may help improve scores on cognitive function tests. It is also widely believed that music improves the mood, alertness and quality of life ... (of peeps w/ Alzheimers or Mild Cognitive Impairment blah blah)"

Let's try it with some Jimi Hendrix.

The article continues:

"The sessions that (some guy) held with the residents were amazing. As the group of individuals around the table focused and articulated past memories, as well as the tunes that go with them, clear recollections poured out about first dances.......choirs and love songs. Observing the group and listening to their memories, you would not believe that they are living with Alzheimer’s disease."

OMG. They're right! I feel much more lucid now. Gimme that Mensa Test.

Wow...I was about ready to go to Lourdes.  (Hope this post gave you a laugh...or a groan.)
