They have been sharing their information about their areas of expertise and the Music and Memory session was one such discussion. This forum was an illuminating one and reinforced the fact that we are on the right track with our choices for Silver Memories. The forum also brought more attention to the transforming power of music in other areas such as speech and movement and discussed examples of people acquiring new memories and restoring old.
Professor Götz also discussed early research results around a possible cure for Alzheimer’s Disease. It was wonderful to see SM up there in the mix with other luminaries in the field of music, the brain and memory.
