Well, music can't hurt, can it..?
I have personally seen & heard 2 severe cases of autism,
where a song prompted a spontaneous response after
years of silence.
Seemed to do the patients a world of good, at least for
a while, as well as present a sort of gateway for further
communication. One was a young man in good physical
shape, the other an old, more or less dying lady.
but what about warning people!!!! PREVENTION
don't have promiscuious sex with people that have herpes!
be tested to see which (2N) alleles you have for ApoE
read thru them !!!!!

he's a multimillionaire

Amen! I'm really jazzed by this story and the iPod project although I don't have any family members who have Alzheimer's disease.
A MOVIE is coming out in July about this!! Maybe that will produce an explosion of interest.
Apparently there are 16,000 nursing homes in the US and many more worldwide. PLus there are the family's where the Alzheimer's victim is still at home. In the US there are 5 million people with Alzheimers and over 125 million victims worldwide with dementia.
I keep mentioning Alzheimer's but it's apparently helpful for dementia and a lot of other situations, such as depression, schizophrenia and so on.
I shared about it on Twitter and a nurse said she would be contacting the director of a nursing home where her father is. This could spread like wildfire to use a trite expression.
parts of the above paragraph are just plain "retarded"; a disservice to mankind a trivilization of a complex problem i.e, talkin' out of your ass.
i can not allow you to lump Alzheimers / dementia / depression / schizophrenia together.
first off... do you even know what is the cause of Alzheimers?????
competence factor >>>> a specific allele of ApoE protein [genetic factor]
progression factor >>>>> chronic neurological inflammatory condition... such as herpes.
this is what i hate with are so-called thought-leaders that are on pharmeceutical industry
the general ignorant [meaning untrained in the field] public is purposely told watered-down paradigms so that you the public can be fed black-magic chemicals
patents & revenue streams and marketing
From your wildly off target response, it looks like you never watched the video. No one ever said Alzheimer's disease was the same as other dementias, nor are they the same as depression or schizophrenia except for you making the wild accusation.
What the nursing home employees said is that listening to music tailored to their own favorite songs from their younger days, is that it has a calming effect on the residents and that it makes them more alive and more social.
The medical professionals said they also prescribed fewer drugs for the patients as well - more than 50% less of the psychotropic drugs. No one has made any claims whatsoever that the personalized music cured the residents. It simply improves their quality of life and does so in a significant way.
As for you demand that I know what causes Alzheimer's disease, don't be silly.. Your description is merely what happens when the disease is active but doesn't answer WHY those things happen.
The disease occurs due to various toxins and the resulting inflammation. By eliminating the toxins and balancing the blood sugar and reducing the inflammation, the disease can be reversed at least partially.
If you have a disagreement with the nursing home staffs that implement the iPod project regarding the wide range of patients conditions that can be improved, take it up with them rather than coming in here without any apparent knowledge of what they are doing and making silly assumptions.
Pray for me.
