The benefits of music on dementia: Evidence from clinical trials.

Abstract :The goal of my presentation is to illustrate how we can fill the gap between experimental findings and clinical applications in cognitive and emotional neurosciences. I will therefore report evidence from randomized clinical trials aiming at testing the effect of musical as compared to non-musical interventions on the emotional and behavioral status of patients with severe Alzheimer’s disease and mixed dementia. The promising potential for non-pharmacological treatments to improve the well-being of patients living in residential care will be discussed in light of the methodological constraints and requirements specific to these clinical studies.
