Dr Vellone says: “Stroke survivors who saw art as an integrated part of their former lifestyle, by expressing appreciation towards music, painting and theatre, showed better recovery skills than those who did not.”
“In our study the ‘art’ group of patients showed a comparable clinical picture to the ‘no art’ group,” he adds. “This is important because it means that patients belonging to the ‘art’ group had a better quality of life independently from the gravity of stroke. The results suggest that art may make long term changes to the brain which help it recover when things go wrong.”
Memories: Car Rides
I am extremely likely to post a lot of music to this blog. I have memories from when my family would get in our big red van and either go to see my grandmother (my mother’s mother) in Atlanta or to some art show. We always had music. This is one I remember. Also memory or no memory it’s a pretty bad ass song.
They decided it was bettr. To do a CAT scan instead of a MRI. The doctors didn’t do until 7 today. My Brother and I didnt get to the hospital til about 8:30 we come in and his bed is gone. They did find tooth abseses whether that is the cause or not of his fever is still in question. I am glad my brother decided to have them do the scan. The doctors told us they didn’t think it was the cause of the fever but that a scan wouldn’t cause any harm to him.
