The Secret Power of Music for Dementia @ Newport Beach Public Library, Friends Room, Central Library
Jan 27 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

The Secret Power of Music for Dementia

In the battle against Alzheimer’s disease, Joshua Grill invokes a deceased jazz singer, iPods and a 35,000-year-old vulture bone that cavemen fashioned into a flute. Grill is a neuroscientist whose research interests focus on clinical trials in neurodegenerative disease. He will explain how music is a powerful force and that can tap into the deepest recesses of the mind, stir emotions and conjure memories, and why music memory is one of the last things affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
