Good News on Music and Parkinson’s Disease

A clinical trial conducted by the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School and supported by The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation showed improvement in visuomotor functioning when subjects with Parkinson’s Disease were listening to music.

Even a superficial recounting of the details is complex, but the news is positive:

The results were encouraging: in the visuomotor tests, 40% of those with mild Parkinson’s were significantly faster with ambient music. In the RAM tests, 83% of those with moderate Parkinson’s showed faster results. In the gait tests, 25% of those with moderate Parkinson’s showed faster and larger strides.
