A domain-general perspective on the role of the basal ganglia in language and music: Benefits of music therapy for the treatment of aphasia.
Abstract In addition to cortical lesions, mounting evidence on the links between language and the subcortical regions suggests that subcortical lesions may also lead to the emergence of aphasic symptoms. In this paper, by emphasizing the domain-general function of the basal ganglia in both language and music, we highlight that rhythm processing, the function of temporal prediction, motor programming and execution, is an important shared mechanism underlying the treatment of non-fluent aphasia with music therapy. In support of this, we conduct a literature review on the music therapy treating aphasia. The results s...

The Therapeutic Approach to Military Culture: A Music Therapist ’s Perspective
AbstractCulture can broadly be defined as “the values, norms, and assumptions that guide human action” (Wilson2008, 14). In contrast with the broader civilian society, the experiences and environments within the military community create a unique cultural subset. The United States armed forces are unified by their primary mission to provide external defense, security, and protection, and each branch (Army, Navy, Marine Corp, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard) shares a unique core set of values and norms. Because this culture is so complex and unique, it can sometimes be a challenge for many civilian pro...

Non-Pharmacological interventions for the anxiety in patients with dementia. A cross-over randomised controlled trial.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Behavioural and Psychiatric Symptoms in dementia (BPSD) tend to be a crucial and big problem in dementia. Anxiety several times remains under-diagnosed because it is often considered to be a psychological response to cognitive decline. As only the 10% of patients were correctly treated, the pharmacological treatment should be well- considered. The aim of this study was to evaluate three non-pharmacological interventions for the treatment of anxiety in dementia. METHODS: A cross-over randomised controlled trial with 60 participants (different types and stages of dementia) conducted in Gree...

Management of cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease using a non-pharmacological intervention program: A case report
Conclusion: The community-based, multicomponent dementia social care program described in this case report has enabled a socially isolated patient with Alzheimer's disease to reduce her social isolation with an associated improvement in her mood and prevention of cognitive decline. Educating the community was an essential part of re-integrating the patient into the social setting. Reducing social isolation and increasing community engagement were essential to maintaining the patient's independence in her own home. (Source: Medicine)

Can music influence cardiac autonomic system? A systematic review and narrative synthesis to evaluate its impact on heart rate variability.
CONCLUSION: This systematic review confirms music as a stimulus acting to the cardiac ANS that increases parasympathetic activity and HRV. The effects are, however, associated with a high risk of bias. Therefore, further studies are necessary to compare the impact of individualized music therapy to passive listening and preferred soundtracks.

More Flexible Integration of Functional Systems After Musical Training in Young Adults
Musical training, because it involves the interaction and integration of diverse functional systems, is an excellent model to investigate training-induced brain plasticity. The human brain functions in a network architecture in which dynamic modules and subgraphs are considered to enable efficient information communication. However, it remains largely unknown how the dynamic integration of functional systems changes with musical training, which may provide new insight into musical training-induced brain plasticity and further the use of music therapy for neuropsychiatric disease and brain injury.
