We, the students of 3rd Year BS Psychology from St. Paul University Quezon City would like to use the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) as our screening tool for our thesis. Our thesis is about the effects of dancing on short term memory on the elderly specifically aged 60 to 70 years old, our research needs 40 healthy participants that doesn’t have any type of dementia or any type of illness that incapacitates them mentally. After giving the potential participants the MMSE we will be choosing 40 participants and we will randomizing them into two groups, the intervention group or experimental group and control group so we can compare and determine the effects of dance on their short term memory
The purpose of this study is to provide better understanding of the effects of dance on short term memory.
