Indicative research title: Home based music listening to improve sleep for carers of people living with dementia.
Hannah's research is a nested project in CIMTR's RadioMe and Homeside projects. It involves using music as an intervention to improve quality of sleep in dementia carers and will include the use of X-System. This will also involve the use of EEG and heart rate data to translate brain activity into corresponding music, with the aim being to create a music playlist synonymous with decreased arousal.
Hannah has an undergraduate and masters degree in psychology, and has also been a musician for most of her life, with her main instruments being clarinet and alto saxophone.
