Listening to pop music can help patients with severe brain injuries recall personal memories, a new study suggests.

Researchers discovered that brain injured patients recalled a similar number of memories when played a song as those without a brain injury.

The study, by Dr Amee Baird and Dr Séverine Samson, was the first to investigate the power of music in evoking memories in people with brain injuries, rather than in those who are healthy or who have dementia.
