Effectiveness of Instrumental Music Therapy On Neuro-Cognitive Functioning In Individuals with Schizophrenia
Dr Mamta Vyas, Albin Eldhose
Past research, proved that cognitive dysfunctions are a primary characteristic of schizophrenia (Bilder et al 2000; Saykin et al 1994). Major alterations have been identified in attention, memory and executive functions in this population. The recent research has emerged that sheds new light on intriguing links between music and a variety of cognitive functions, including temporal order learning (Hitch, Burgess, & Culpin 1996), attention (Drake, Jones, & Baruch, 2000), and auditory verbal memory (e.g., Deutsch, 1982). The purpose of this study is to understand the effectiveness of instrumental music therapy on neuro-cognitive functioning in schizophrenic patients. The study is a pre–post experimental design with a control group matched for clinical characteristics. Twenty patients age range 18 - 45 are dividing into three groups of five people each. The one experimental will participate in a series of instrumental music therapy. The control group will not get any kind of intervention. One of the striking findings of this present study was that those who received instrumental music therapy rather than Control group observed more significant improvements in neuro-cognitive functioning.
