Wonderful! Music is stored in a different part of the brain than language, but apparently it can affect a person's ability to produce language.

Thanks for this! It is truly amazing how music can reach in through the abyss of dementia and pull people back. My mother suffers from vascular dementia. When I go up to visit I often play the piano for the folks in her group. People who are non-responsive will suddenly "wake up" and become animated - tap their feet, some will sing, one woman got up out of her wheelchair to dance.

I think next time I'll load up an iPod with some '40s hits for her era and she how she does with that.

Excellent. The old guy seemed fairly lucid to me. He knew who his favorite artist was, and also his favorite song.

I like Cab Calloway too!! :-)
