  1. According to randomized group: No music control vs. music audio-playlist without RAS vs. music audio-playlist with RAS enhancement. RAS, rhythmic auditory stimulation; STD, standard deviation. * P value tests for statistical differences across the three groups (i.e. Control vs. Playlist vs. Playlist-RAS enhanced). Self-managed activity incorporated Generalized Linear Equations. Process and clinical outcomes incorporated the Kruskal-Wallis Test. Statistical tests for differences in categorical variables used Fishers’ Exact test.
