Neurological Study: EEG Results Show Impact of Enhanced Music
Methodology for EEG Study of Alzheimer’s Music Connect Products
For the Electroencephalography (EEG) recordings, Dr. Lorianne Avino recruited qualified participants from her patient base. Those selected to participate in the study were mid-stage to later-stage Alzheimer’s patients 70 years old or older.
During the procedure, electrodes consisting of small metal discs with thin wires were pasted on the scalp of each Alzheimer’s patients. These electrodes detected the tiny electrical charges that resulted from the activity of the patient’s brain cells. The charges were recorded and printed out on paper; Dr. Avino then interpreted those readings.
After an initial recording performed at rest, each patient listened to 20 minutes of un-enhanced music. This was followed by a second resting period. The patient then heard another 20 minutes of music enhanced by Altus Oscillation™.

Re: Executive Medical Summary of Requested EEGTesting of the Effect of Unenhanced vs. Enhanced (LifeMusic, Inc.’s Altus Oscillation) Music on Alzheimer’s patients.
Dear Mr. Gregory,
This Executive Summary describes the results of the Electroencephalography (EEG) recordings of mid-stage Alzheimer’s patients before and after exposure to both unenhanced and the Altus Oscillation enhanced music from LifeMusic, Inc. Notably, the EEG is considered to be the “gold standard” as the most reliable tool for measuring the electrical impulses in the brain.
It is my professional opinion that the results of the EEG’s are extremely promising in your quest to determine if patients experience increased brain activity while listening to your enhanced music.
Utilizing standard procedures, I created a neutral atmosphere to ensure there were no outside distractions during the testing period and started with a neutral baseline for each patient participating in the study. I then exposed the patient to the unenhanced music, recording my findings in order to compare them to my findings after exposure to the enhanced music.
The EEG response to the enhanced music included some or all of the following for each patient:
Amplified brain activity in the frontal or parietal lobe;
Greater alertness to the present moment;
Demonstrated calmness and contentment;
Singing or humming along with the music; and
Increased symmetrical brain activity.
Therefore, I can say in my professional medical opinion that the results of this study demonstrated increased temporary positive effects on mid-stage Alzheimer’s patients aged 70+ who experienced the enhanced music (with LifeMusic, Inc.’s patent pending Altus Oscillation process) versus unenhanced music.
It has been my pleasure to conduct this study. The results appear to indicate that your product, Alzheimer’s Music Connect, has the potential to become a valuable aid in the care and caregiving of Alzheimer’s patients.
Mr. Gregory, do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions. Please find my attached CV for your review.
