As a mature and complete borderline discipline, music therapy has developed clinical treatment methods to treat physical and mental disorders of certain diseases. This literature review explores the biological aspects of the effectiveness of music therapy, illustrates the effects of music therapy on the diseased brain and other organs, and examines the use and limitations of music therapy in dementia and schizophrenia. In dementia, music therapy can improve the prognosis of patients with dementia and reduce the abnormal behavior of patients, but the effect of regret is not lasting; In schizophrenia, music therapy often plays a role in treating negative symptoms, but the performance of music therapy in treating positive symptoms remains to be studied. To sum up, music therapy is a promising clinical therapy. However, the current research on it is still relatively single, and more experiments and information are needed to understand the neural mechanism of music therapy in order to achieve better treatment methods.
