Music as a memory enhancer in patients with Alzheimer’s disease

Musical mnemonics have a long and diverse history of popular use. In addition, music processing in general is often considered spared by the neurodegenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Research examining these two phenomena is limited, and no work to our knowledge has explored the effectiveness of musical mnemonics in AD. The present study sought […]

Does auditory rhythmical cueing improve gait in people with Parkinson’s disease and cognitive impairment? A feasibility study

Gait and balance problems resulting from Parkinson’s disease (PD) are more common in people with PD and dementia (PDD), yet, it is unknown whether the benefits of cueing therapy for mobility generalize to them. We aimed to determine the feasibility and effectiveness of auditory cues to improve gait in PD and cognitive impairment (PD-CI). Nine […]

Effect of rhythmic auditory cueing on gait in people with Alzheimer disease

Objective: To determine whether rhythmic music and metronome cues alter spatiotemporal gait measures and gait variability in people with Alzheimer disease (AD).; Design: A repeated-measures study requiring participants to walk under different cueing conditions.; Setting: University movement laboratory.; Participants: Of the people (N=46) who met study criteria (a diagnosis of probable AD and ability to […]

Technology-based orientation programs to support indoor travel by persons with moderate Alzheimer’s disease: impact assessment and social validation

The present study (a) extended the assessment of an orientation program involving auditory cues (i.e., verbal messages automatically presented from the destinations) with five patients with Alzheimer’s disease, (b) compared the effects of this program with those of a program with light cues (i.e., a program in which strobe lights were used instead of the […]

Effect of a non-pharmacological intervention, Voix d’Or(®), on behavior disturbances in Alzheimer disease and associated disorders

An innovative non-pharmacological intervention called Voix d’Or(®) (Golden Voice) was proposed in the Cognitive behavioral unit (CBU) of the Memory center at the Hospices civils in Lyon. Voix d’Or(®) offers eight sound activities disseminated via an audio device based on different approaches sociotherapeutic (music therapy, reminiscence, relaxation, reorientation in reality). The aim of this study […]
