Dementia is the most significant health issue facing our aging population. With no cure to date, there is an urgent need for the development of interventions that can alleviate symptoms of dementia and ensure optimal well-being for people with dementia and their caregivers. There is accumulating evidence that music is a highly effective, non-pharmacological treatment for various symptoms of dementia at all stages of disease progression. In its various forms, music (as a medium for formal therapy or an informal activity) engages widespread brain regions, and in doing so, can promote numerous benefits, including triggering memories, enhancing relationships, affirming a sense of self, facilitating communication, reducing agitation, and alleviating depression and anxiety. This book outlines the current research and understanding of the use of music for people with dementia, from internationally renowned experts in music therapy, music psychology, and clinical neuropsychology.


Music has always been used as a balm for ailing minds. Only recently, however, has it become possible to understand how music achieves its effects in our brains and why it may be a therapeutic tool in people with dementia. This book presents the state of the art of the field, showing how insights from cognitive science inform music-based therapies, illustrating the breadth of approaches and instruments and highlighting new directions. It is an invaluable resource for music therapists, psychologists and neuroscientists and for all caretakers of people with dementia." * Jason Warren, BMedSci (Hons), MBBS (Hons), PhD, FRACP, Professor of Neurology and Consultant Neurologist, Director, UCL MSc in Dementia (Neuroscience), University College London * There is an urgent need to train professionals and carers in effective non-pharmacological interventions to support the increasing number of people living with dementia. Music and Dementia: From Cognition to Therapy presents a long-awaited series of cutting-edge research studies and commentary that examine the use of music in the lives of people living with dementia. Of special importance is the close examination of neural and social mechanisms that are activated during music engagement experiences." * Felicity Baker, PhD, Professor and Head of Music Therapy, and Co-Director of Creative Arts and Music Therapy Research Unit at The University of Melbourne * This unique and long-awaited scholarly book emphasizes the substantial contribution music can make for people with dementia. It combines neuroscience, music therapy, and psychology in one informative volume. It explains why music is important in dementia, drawing upon scientifically rigorous studies and case material to substantiate what we know." * Helen Odell-Miller, OBE, Professor of Music Therapy, Director of the Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research (CIMTR), and Head of Therapies at Anglia Ruskin University, UK *
