Matthews, S. (2015). Dementia and the power of music therapy. Bioethics, 29(8), 573-579. Background: Dementia is already critical issues in the world. This situation requires establishment of rehabilitation for relieving symptoms of patients. We have done research based on our assumption that most effective music therapy differs from culture, because music is dependent on cultural context. In this paper, we focus on active behavior (sing a song) of music therapy, and studied its effects. We used Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) as a method for evaluating effectiveness of music therapy, though standard procedures of NIRS data processing has not been established. This is the reason why we here propose a new analysis method of NIRS data for evaluating effectiveness of music therapy. Methods: We collected 87 volunteers including 79 dementia patients. We let the volunteers hear music prepared by us as follows: 2 famous nursery songs, 2 famous play songs, 2 original music, and 2 classical scale. We observed their response in 2 ways: one is a physiological response measured by NIRS, and the other is a subjective response measured by questionnaires. Results: Our result showed dementia patients prefer Japanese old melodies, but they don’t understand tonality of the Japanese music. This tendency is strengthened by adding Song task. Also, dementia patients are poor at careful control of the blood volume change. Our result displayed singing a song induces out-of-control state of brain blood flow in every stage. Our results revealed characteristic responses of dementia patients onto Japanese music. Conclusion: We expect our result provides an evidence for better music therapy for dementia patients with Japanese culture.

The term contemporary art encompasses all art being done now. It tends to include any art made from around the 1960s to the present, or after the end of the modern art period. The use of the literal adjective “contemporary” to define this period in art history is due to the lack of any recognized or dominant form or genre of art as recognized by artists or art historians and critics. The period of art since modernism is also sometimes called postmodern art, but as postmodernism refers to an approach or paradigm that many contemporary artists do not operate from, “contemporary” may be preferred as a more inclusive adjective.

International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, Advance online publication. Examines the evolution of the creative improvisational musical styles commonly called jazz, from its African-American roots to its status as one of America’s classical musics and an internationally valued art form. Explores the contributions of African and European musical traditions and African-American spirituals, work songs, and blues. Examines major contributors and stylistic development and change through selected audio and audio-visual presentations. Also considers the sociocultural dynamics that have affected musical evolution and acceptance. Music is widely used by people of all ages as a stimulant and relaxant to manage everyday situations. Whether to motivate us for exercise or to help us unwind after a busy day, we seem to have an intuitive understanding about the influences music has on our bodies. The body’s responses to music are both conscious and unconscious, involving entrainment with rhythm, hormonal and neurological reactions, and changes in mood, emotion, and pain perception. This article explains these physiological responses to music and provides guidelines for consideration when selecting music to evoke desired bodily responses. Applications using music in rehabilitation are also provided to illustrate health-promoting qualities of music. Not to be considered titles are categories of subject matter, which are capitalized but not italicized. Example: He was commissioned to paint an Annunciation and ended up painting an Adoration of the Magi as well. Likewise, names acquired by tradition are not to be considered titles, as in the Friedsam Annunciation. (Friedsam is not part of the title of the work.) The distinction between the subject and the title should be respected. Examples: He made a painting of the Battle of Cascina; he made a painting, The Battle of Cascina. She executed a portrait of the artist in her studio; her Portrait of the Artist in Her Studio.
