    My aunt has alzheimers. She and my mom were teachers. So once my mom was singing the Mexican National Anthem... se sang with her... and some other songs they used while teaching elementary back in the 60s

    Amazing. Even though she couldn't remember anything else this melody is embedded into her memory

    I love this wonderful research. Just wish there was so much more of it... a natural way to at least momentarily transform a patient... and hopefully lead the way to something extraordinary. Guess the majority of research is stuck on pharmaceuticals since this is where the money is. Wish it was where the cutting-edge was!

    Such powerful images! And I must say music has that kind of affect on the human brain. It's more like a subliminal side paired with muscle memory.
