The power of music connecting people with themselves





Ankhanu
I just came across a pretty interesting video in which the doctors/staff of a nursing home have made use of iPods and knowledge of patients' pasts to revitalize previously unresponsive patients. Basically, the music penetrates the fog they're living in with some sort of trigger or reminder of who they once were. The video starts with an anecdote of using this on one patient, then demonstrates its effect on another (I assume because he has such a dramatic transformation upon exposure, where it seemed that the other patient remained trapped within their own mind, though more animate)



Anyway, it sets up some interesting neurological questions that could be studies to figure out just what's going on in these people... Pretty inspiring stuff.
