Clinical Applications of Music in Neurologic Rehabilitation
The papers in the book are based on proceedings of the "Clinical Applications of Music and Neurologic Rehabilitation" conference sponsored by CenterLight Health System Health Services in March 1993. Dr. Oliver Sacks has for the first time written specifically about "Music and the Brain." Concetta Tomaino presents examples of how music can stimulate seemingly lost motor and cognitive function through activation of alternative neural networks.
Rhythmic Activities for Everyday Care: A Dementia Care Video Training Guide
This DVD and companion booklet are designed to provide instruction on how to develop and lead a therapeutic rhythm program that can engage and soothe people with dementia and tap into the potential for communication that they still have. It teaches classic rhythm techniques while offering several examples of rhythmic activities. It can also serve as an activity in itself, for it follows the course of a 20-minute therapeutic rhythm group from beginning to end. This program was created by the Institute for Music and Neurological Function, a member of CenterLight Health System and made in partial fulfillment of a grant through the New York State Department of Health, Dementia Grant Program. It is intended for educational use by caregivers in dementia care settings.
Keep On Moving: Music for Therapeutic Rhythmic Activities
This CD recording, with music we recommend to help facilitate therapeutic rhythmic activities, is a follow-up to our "Rhythmic Activities for Everyday Care" DVD, The first five tracks are to familiarize the listener with the styles of music and the interpretations of songs. Tracks six through fifteen are for active participation. They are in the order of percussion alone, followed by the song without percussion. This allows the caregivers/facilitators to get an idea of what percussion rhythms can be played over the song. The percussion tracks also allow time to pass out instruments to the clients. Once the group has been given their instruments and have been playing along to the percussion tracks, they will be ready to add their own percussive flavor to the song.
