A Japanese brain scientist managed to improve the cognitive and physical functions of dementia patients just by having them take part in 30-minute group drum sessions 3 times a week for 3 months. We look at why the activity had such an effect. We also focus on the difficulty of delivering drugs to the brain, which is a major hurdle to treating dementia, and how a researcher aims to overcome this using nanotechnology.
