Researchers from the RadioMe project, including Dr Alex Street, Professor Jörg Fachner, Professor Eduardo Miranda, Dr Alexis Kirke will be joined by Emeritus Professor Nigel Osborne MBE to present on the topic of music listening technology and arousal adjustment.
Current evidence suggests that music listening might improve quality of life for people living with dementia and help regulate arousal, thus assisting in the management of neuropsychiatric symptoms such as agitation. Personal playlist creation may bring more benefits, and research has established how and where to source music likely to have personal meaning and to be linked to positive memories. The areas addressed in this round table will include, what music listening does, how people can currently access such playlists most efficiently and what can be done to improve access to effective playlists and listening systems that will ensure access to the music when most needed, including when living at home.
