The Power of Music

     Music has a powerful ability to inspire, energize, and move people.  Your favorite melody or lyrics can affect your mood so that the tone of your day totally shifts.  We are not able to comprehend the full and far reaching scope that music has on our psyche, memory, and development.  On going studies have been tried to decode music's impact on people over the years.  There is little doubt that the power of music can influence and possibly even "activate" individuals suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's .  Watch the video below for a cool look at the power of music on a nursing home patient who appears to be often unresponsive due to dementia.

    This video is a clip from the documentary "Alive Inside".  Read more about the project by clicking here.
