The priming and involvement of learning and memory structures in the processing music can also be supported by anecdotal evidence. For example, many Alzheimer's patients have been known to 'retrieve' lost memory through listening to particular types of music (3) . It seems that processing music involves the use of memory and also aids in the retrieval of past memories. From this, it may be speculated that there is a strong connection between memory centers of the brain as well as those that process music. Another interesting effect of music is observed in patients with Parkinson's (3). Some immobile patients have been observed to get up and walk around when the 'right' kind of music is playing. This implies that particular kinds of music can elicit complex motor behavior . Whether this response is due to the musical memory which serves to prompt the retrieval of a lost 'motor score' is unknown. It has been experimentally shown, however, that certain types of music can synchronize brain waves (6), which may, in turn, aid synchronizing neural patterns involved in complex behavior such as walking or running. This particular observation may also implicate the possibility of emotional arousal produced by music which may ultimately cause both the retrieval of memories and the volition for movement.
