Music and The Brain

Music Taps Into Primal Fear There are certain sounds that humans automatically associate with death because they tap into our evolutionary fear of the screams of other animals (and other human beings). Scientists have dubbed these "discordant noises", any noise that makes you feel very unpleasant falls into this category. We know if we hear other living things making those discordant noises that we have to react because something bad is going to happen.

The Mozart Effect The key for boosting creative energies is to listen to the type of music you enjoy the most. If you want more inspiration in language and mathematics it would make sense to listen to music with singing, while music without words stimulates more artistic and visual senses. It's been thought that listening to classical music, particularly Mozart, enhances performance on coğnitive tests. However, recent findings show that listening to any music thắt is personally enjoyable has positive effects on cognition. Listening to music can make you learn better and has the power to enhance some kinds of highér brain function, such as reading and literacy skills, spatial-temporal reasoning, emotional intelligence and mathematical abilities - even children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder benefit in mathematics tests from listening to music beforehand.
