Transcendental Tunes: Using Music To Trigger The Memories Of Alzheimer’s Patients
Familiar sounds and digital jewelry act as a communication system between a patient and their care partner.
Designer José de la O’s Transcendental Tunes project combines RFID technology and a retro stereo to play digital tunes which trigger the memories of Alzheimer’s patients and helps them communicate better with their caregivers. People affected with Alzheimer’s disease don’t lose their memory, they are simply unable to access it. The project uses music to access the memory stored in the Medial Prefrontal Cortex-the region of the brain responsible for familiar music, memories and emotion and is significantly, the last part to be affected by Alzheimer’s.
