Power Of Music On The Brain | Dementia Astronaut emergency | Test your 1 day ago   29:18

ABC Science
If you had to make a playlist of your life, what would be on it? And if, toward the end of your life, your mind and memories were fading away, would this soundtrack help bring them back? Catalyst takes you inside an extraordinary new program which is revealing that personalised playlists can re-awaken the brains of people with advanced dementia and even allow people with severe Parkinson's to unfreeze and move.

Along the way we look more deeply at the power of music in all our lives - why is it so emotional, so memorable and so powerful that even when much of the brain is gone, music can bring it alive?
