Disco in the Alzheimer’s ward. This party is gonna be lit with pounding music. Gonna bring back memories of the good old days.

Sound and light actually may reverse the plaque deposits of Alzheimer’s and restore some memory functions. The process being develop works in rats. The sound doesn’t need to be loud, just in the gamma wave length, and when combined with flashing lights, the results were very promising.

Seems that Alzheimer’s impedes gamma waves. By running sound at that wave length, the gamma waves are pushed through and get to do their thing – notably simulating blood vessels to cleanse poisons out of the brain.
