The aging population seems to benefit from music making as well, both in regards to those with dementia and those without dementia (Cevasco, 2010; Creech, Hallam, Varvarigou, McQueen & Gaunt, 2013). Music can also be self-administered, which allows it to be one of the more safe prescriptions for healing (Murrock & Higgins, 2009). Therefore we understand that music is one of the most useful therapies we have access to, and should not be afraid to use it in a broader setting as nurses. Basic Music Theory Murrock and Higgins (2009) developed a concept based on the neurological responses to music and their possible correlation to positive reinforcement when combined with the daily recommendations on exercise from the national guidelines. They wanted to encourage health optimization through physical exercise, positive neurologic responses to music, and behavioral development of routine exercise.

Music Therapy in the Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease Lori A. Montoya Tacoma Community College Music Therapy in the Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease It is estimated more than 5.3 million people have Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, with a new case of AD being diagnosed every 70 seconds. For women living over the age of 55 the risk of developing AD is 17%. For men, at the same age, the risk is slightly lowered at 9% (LeMone, Burke & Bauldoff, 2011, p.1510). Due to these staggering statics, AD continues to be an area of great interest and concern for the medical community.

Although discovered in 1839, Binaural Beats are still a relatively unknown concept to most doctors of rehabilitation or therapy (Manley 1) .The term Binaural Beats is given to the phenomenon in which two tones of very slightly differing frequencies are presented to a subject wearing headphones, the effect of the similar tone... ... middle of paper ... ...ilicon dreams: digital drugs and regulation. 2008. 23 Feb. 2010 .
