9 effects that classical music has on our brain

In classical music the have granted always various benefits like reducing stress or cause a better plant growth (this is what we have to ask our biologist, Marina, to see if it is a myth or is completely real). But while we wait to see if would be nice to bring them to our geraniums a good list of Spotify Mozart or Beethoven, here are some of the proven classical music in our brain benefits:

1. Music cause the same emotions that speech:

According to some studies, music has the ability to cause chills or make our heart “swell of joy , ” even in different cultures .. For example, Western music cause emotions of excitement or joy . This may be because the music mimics the tonal characteristics of the emotion of the voice , leveraging our communication skills and our cultural associations in the same way.

2. Music can help us recover after a transplant:

For if, according to research published in The Journal of Surgery Cardiothoraic , listening to classical or opera music after a heart transplant can mean the difference between success and failure, as they have found that music reduces anxiety, pain and nausea, even they claim that there could be some effect on the parasympathetic nervous system (a part of the nervous system whose function is to control unconscious things in our body, such as digestion). According to the research, conducted with mice receiving a heart transplant, classical music lengthened the life time of the transplant before it failed on other types of music, possibly improving the immune system according to the researchers , but this is not fully clarified.

3. Classical music can reduce pain and anxiety:

Relating to the previous example, an investigation by the Duke Cancer Institute found that using headphones with noise cancellation and in which classical music is heard (in this case listened to Bach), reduced pain and anxiety during a biopsy prostate . Normally blood pressure increased stress and anxiety occurs, but to put the music such an increase was not given. In addition, those using headphones reported they felt less pain.

4. Listen to classical music could improve performance:

 According to a recent study by the Health Science Center, University of Texas , physicians who listened to Mozart while performing colonoscopy increased their detection rates of precancerous polyps above references, and above doctors not listening to music . Even when doctors knew the purpose of the study, their detection rates jumped from 27.1% to 36.7%, which is not bad. Research suggests that this improved performance could also occur in more professions and in other situations.

5. Classical music can lower blood pressure:

If we know that reduces pain and anxiety, they tell us that music also lowers blood pressure should not surprise us , since it also reduces stress and this, in turn, affects blood pressure , according tocomparisons made ​​in a study at the University of San Diego between classical music and jazz, pop or otherwise. As you will imagine, those who listened to classical music had lower blood pressure levels.

6. Listen to classical music could combat insomnia:

As I told you, you must first quit (or not start), because the snuff affects sleep quality . And if still you have trouble falling asleep, an investigation of the University of Toronto says that listening to classical music before bed may help, as would cause us to sleep us faster and further, excellent nights sleep longer ( why using drugs having music? over cheaper hear ).

This is due to the rhythms and tonal patterns of this kind of music, which create a meditative mood and a slow brain waves.

7. The ” Mozart Effect” improves temporarily spatiotemporal reasoning and short – term memory:

For if, Mozart also has an effect, besides great music. This effect is, according to a meta-analysis of all research until 1999 on the subject, that listening to Mozart would cause excitement, which wouldcause a temporary enhancement of spatial reasoning and short – term memory (but nothing to improve our IQ, no one delude). According to another study conducted in 2003, this improvement lasted only 15 minutes.

8. Classical music can promote brain development in children:

A few weeks ago I spoke of the benefits you had to play an instrument since childhood on official site of fatorgenius suplemento, it is that this type of music helps to better brain development, but not become a genius anyone. But, according toa study by Dr. Gordon Shaw of the University of California-Irvine , children who listened to Mozart and then studied piano had better scores in math than others. And, according to other studies, listen to music and practice could help children develop spatial and verbal skills and encourage self-control.

9. Classical music can help you learn new languages:

This will come me well even to me, I’m planteandome improve my English and even French (German, despite the encouragement they have given me, remain unconvinced).

According to research by the University of Illinois in 2005, s and found evidence that listening toclassical music improved language learning, as it could encourage learning grammar, vocabulary, improve pronunciation and to help us appreciate more the culture . Subsequently, other studieshave supported these findings. And, most impressive about this topic, it is the method used by Dr. George Lazanov, foreign language teacher, using baroque music to help their students learn 1000 vocabulary of foreign languages ​​in a single day with an accuracy 85 to 100% (if this is true, we must try …).
