A review of literature on music therapy by Koelsch (2009) reveals music can automatically capture attention and may distract thought from negative experiences such as pain, anxiety, worry and sadness. Dopamine is a feel-good chemical with a neurotransmitter associated with the pleasure system of the brain. It is responsible for both motivation and addiction. Even anticipating the sound of music is known to trigger the release of dopamine, according to a recent study published in Nature Neuroscience (2011).
Music therapy reportedly improved moods and mental state. Studies have proven there is significant reduction in depression among participants who were selected at random to music therapy, compared to those receiving standard care conditions. Music has also been used to address the needs of patients with traumatic brain injuries. In a book by Gilbertson and Aldrige and reviewed by Wright (2008), music therapy was found to be effective as a rehabilitative treatment for patients who were initially considered unreachable or non-responsive. This is proven in comprehensive studies of clients who were thought to be in a vegetative state but were able to react to music and subsequently indicated the ability to communicate.
