Cedars-Sinai Volunteers Turn Music Into Medicine

On the worst day of her life, Rebecca Woolf found comfort in the most unexpected way. As her husband lay dying in his hospital bed, the sound of a harp wafted in.

Intrigued, Woolf went into the hallway to chat briefly with the harpist, Una O'Donovan. "I told her that her being there felt like a gift," Woolf said, explaining that she believed her husband was somehow saying goodbye through the music.

Then, as Woolf wrote in a post she put on Instagram, O’Donovan hugged her, cried with her and "took my hand." Then, O'Donovan "played us two songs in his room. They were the most beautiful songs I had ever heard."

That experience last October is a touching example of work by volunteers with Cedars-Sinai’s Music for Healing program. The long-running program -- which currently is looking for new volunteer performers from the community -- dispatches musicians and singers to perform for patient

Cognitive Decline Eventually Affects Everyone, Just Not To The Same Extent

You must remember this: Just about everybody experiences some changes with their memory in their later years.

“Most of us lose some of our brain cells after we hit 65 or so, and it’s considered perfectly normal,” said Jo Cleveland, M.D., professor of gerontology and geriatric medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. “Some people may notice the changes with their memory a little sooner, and the changes will be more in some people than in others, but all of us will have some cognitive issues at some point.”

Those issues fall into three categories: the short-term memory lapses of normal aging; mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a set of more noticeable difficulties with recall and speech; and dementia, the most common form of which is Alzheimer’s disease, which involves memory, language, reasoning and judgment problems severe enough to interfere with daily life.

Ultrasound Used To Trigger Insulin Release In Mice Shows Promise For Future Diabetes Therapy

The World Health Organization ranks Type 2 diabetes among the most common causes of death in the world. Current treatments can help the body use insulin at various stages of the disease, but they can also be expensive and subject patients to lifelong medication regimens and side effects. Thanks to new therapeutic ultrasound technology, one promising alternative looks to reshape how early Type 2 diabetes is managed.

A group of researchers from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., has used ultrasound therapy to stimulate insulin release from mice on demand. After exposing the pancreas, the body’s insulin production center, to ultrasonic pulses, the researchers saw measurable increases in the mice's blood insulin levels.

The team will present their findings at the 177th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America, which takes place from May 13-17, at the Galt House in Lou

Many Older Americans Expect To Lose Brainpower, Poll Finds, But Most Don’t Ask Doctors About Preventing Dementia

Many Americans in their 50s and early 60s are worried about declining brain health, especially if they have loved ones with memory loss and dementia, a new national poll finds.

But while the majority of those polled say they take supplements or do puzzles in an effort to stave off brain decline, very few of them have talked with their doctors about evidence-based ways to prevent memory loss.

As a result, they may miss out on proven strategies to keep their brains sharp into their later years, says the poll team from the University of Michigan.

In all, nearly half of respondents to the National Poll on Healthy Aging felt they were likely to develop dementia as they aged, and nearly as many worried about this prospect. In reality, research suggests that less than 20% of people who have reached age 65 will go on to lose cognitive ability from Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia or oth
