Music & Memory

October 18, 2022 - 1:30pm

Please join us for this complimentary presentation!  Hearing a song evokes a tune, a lyric or a rhythm.  For many of us it also evokes emotions and memories.  For those with Alzheimer's Disease or dementia, music seems to stick around, even through cognitive changes.  How is it that the brain changes of dementia do not affect our ability to recognize a tune, even when we have trouble recognizing where we are or the people around us? 

Explore musical memory in the context of dementia with Rachel Robinson, LMSW, Program Coordinator at The Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease at Albany Medical Center.
