Music and Dopamine – Potential in Movement Disorders

Review Data

Purpose and Significance of Study: This is a review of the existing literature on the link between music and movement disorders, especially the effect of music on the dopaminergic system in Parkinson’s disease. 

 

Fit with Scope of Journal: The manuscript is of very high interest for the journal Journal of Brain and Nerves. 

 

o   The manuscript contains some minor errors (already corrected in the galley proof, except the highlighted one which requires the author’s attentionlisted below – 

In the Title –  

·       Both “Music in the past and future with dopamine” and “Getting along with movement disorders” do not convey any clear meaning; hence, the Title must be reframed, e.g., “Music and dopamine – potential in movement disorders. 

In the Abstract – 

·       In the 1st sentence, “derive” must be replaced with “have been deriving”, “for a” must be replaced with “since”, and “time” must be removed. 

·       In the 3rd sentence, “from” must be replaced with “in”. 

·       In the 7th sentence, “get must be replaced with “this is the very part that is.

·       In the last sentence, “its” before “related” must be removed. 

In the History of music and human –

·       In the 4th sentence, “a” must be inserted before “part”. 

In Music and clinical effects – 

  In the 1st paragraph – 

·       In the 1st sentence, “now” must be removed. 

  In the 2nd paragraph – 

·       In the 3rd sentence, “nonmusic” must be replaced with “non-music”. 

In the Music and dopaminergic functions – 

·       In the 5th sentence, “,” after “ventral tegmental area” must be replaced with “in”. 

·       In the last sentence, “potent ability” must be replaced with “immense potential”, and “for after “music” must be replaced with “in”. 

In the Regulation of dopamine biosynthesis – 

·       In the 2nd sentence, “,” must be inserted after “subsequently”. 

·       In the 4th sentence, “the” must be inserted before “TH protein”. 

In the Molecular mechanism of dopaminergic pathogenesis – 

·       In the 2nd sentence, “On the” at the start must be removed, “of” after “decrease” must be replaced with “in”, and “was” must be inserted before “elevated”. 

·       In the 3rd sentence, “the” must be inserted before “facilitation”, and “in” after “result” must be replaced with “of”. 

·       In the 6th sentence, “the” must be inserted before “dysfunction”. 

·       In the 8th sentence, “the” before “proteasomal inhibition” must be removed. 

In the Advances in therapies for Parkinson’s disease – 

·       In the last sentence, “the” must be inserted before “expectations”. 

In the Future of music and dopaminergic disorders – 

·       In the 3rd sentence, “By” at the start must be removed, “listing” must be replaced with “listening”, and “as well as” after “motor function” must be replaced with “but also”. 

In the Acknowledgements –
