Music has a prominent role in the everyday life of many people. Whether
it is for recreation, distraction, or mood enhancement. A lot of people
listen to music from early in the morning until late at night,
especially since the invention of radio and recordings.
Musical sounds, like all auditory signals, unfold over time. It is
therefore necessary for the auditory system to integrate the
sequentially ordered sounds into a coherent musical perception. This
series-to-parallel transformation can be considered a mechanism of
working memory, which temporarily stores auditory units and combines
them into a single percept (such as a sound pattern, rhythm or melody).
Interestingly, there seems to be a high degree of overlap between
working memory for musical stimuli and for verbal stimuli, as has been
shown in recent working-memory experiments.
San Carlos Elms is proud to be certified in Music & Memory so we can enrich the lives of our Residents through the individualization of music.
Thank you to Suzie Hughs and One Life Counseling for their efforts in bringing this exciting program to our community.
