  • Wound on top of old, dried trees. It’s a very strange concept when you think about it. And that’s just stringed instruments. So a common justification is that….
  • It makes us smarter
  • Or does it? That’s the question that we’ll be exploring today.
  • Pythagoras, who, by the way,
  • Looks a LOT like Paul Bloom
  • Anyway, Pythagoras first realized that mathematics was related to music
  • For example…
  • In the middle ages…
  • EINSTEIN! So what does this mean?
  • Here are some claims about music.It improves…

  • In all seriousness, there have been a lot of studies, both correlational and causal
  • There are some studies showing modest increases in IQ, others showing none; it’s hard to tell

    26. 26. SHORT-TERM EFFECTS Mozart Effect? Rauscher, Shaw, and Ky (1993) in Nature Finding: College students who listened to 10 minutes of a Mozart sonata had increased spatial abilities for 15-20 minutes than those who sat in silence or listened to relaxing music
    27. 27. SHORT-TERM EFFECTS Mozart Effect? Rauscher, Shaw, and Ky (1993) in NatureProblems:1. Not consistently replicated (Steele, Bass, & Crook, 1999; Steele, Dalla Bella, et al., 1999)

When replicated, benefits accounted for just by arousal and mood influences (Husain,Thompson, & Schellenberg, 2002; Thompson, Schellenberg, & Husain, 2001)
    29. 29. SHORT-TERM EFFECTS Mozart Effect? Rauscher, Shaw, and Ky (1993) in NatureTake Away: Listening to music doesn’t prime us  it just manipulates our mood and arousal (Nantais & Schellenberg, 1999)

    71. 71. LONG-TERM EFFECTSEmotional Sensitivity & Speech ProsodyReasoning?
    72. 72. LONG-TERM EFFECTS Emotional Sensitivity & Speech ProsodyReasoning 1. Speech prosody = melody (intonation) & rhythm (stress and timing)
    73. 73. LONG-TERM EFFECTS Emotional Sensitivity & Speech ProsodyReasoning 1. Speech prosody = melody (intonation) & rhythm (stress and timing) 2. Emotional meaning shares similar structure as music (timbre, amplitude, pitch, stress, etc.)

    75. 75. LONG-TERM EFFECTS Emotional Sensitivity & Speech ProsodyResults 1. Music and speech prosody share similar neural paths in right hemisphere (Zatorre, Evans & Meyer, 1994; Joseph, 1988; Shapiro & Danly, 1985)
